Dan Joranko, a founding member of TIPL, has worked for many years on social justice concerns, primarily through Tennessee Alliance for Progress but also with the TN Chapter of Sierra Club, the Nashville Peace and Justice Center, and the TN Environmental Council.
He also teaches at the Vanderbilt Divinity School within its Practical Ministry Program, teaching sustainability, Church in the City, and social action. Dan coordinates Vanderbilt’s Riverbend Prison Program which holds classes for inmates and divinity students. He increasingly turns to his roots through the United Methodist’s Creation Care programs.
TIPL thanks Dan for his years of service and ongoing passion to offer a spiritual response to climate change. We look forward to the many ways that under the TIPL banner he will work with the Nashville interfaith community to offer a collective spiritual response to climate change and justice.
