Dori is an environmental planner, climate activist, and educator. She works with non-profits, governments, universities, and faith communities to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, eco-justice, and waste reduction and reuse.
She is the statewide coordinator and group leader with Citizens’ Climate Lobby, an organization working to create the political will for a livable world by passing Climate Change Legislation, and a board member with Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light. She also works with students at Butler University in Indiana.
For episode two of The Belief Books, I decided to jump to chapter two right away, which I named “Duality.” For chapter two I’ve decided to explore the topic of science and faith. I’m interested in how people see each of those realms and how they interact. Are the disconnected or do they overlap? How do people define faith? And what role does science have to play in all of this?
I was connected with Dori after I recorded a Citizen’s Climate Lobby sponsored event up in Michigan. I realized pretty fast that I needed to connect with the Indianapolis chapter so I could get involved. That’s how I met Dori Chalder, who I now consider a consistent motivator and friend.

I’ve already been getting messages and feedback on this project which is really encouraging. And I look forward to getting more suggestions or questions as I keep posting more episodes.
Here’s a motivating tweet I got early on from someone who goes by Nurture Nature (@NNUS) on Twitter.
“Love The Belief Books concept! You need to post the interviews on YouTube so you can post them on Twitter and elsewhere easily. BEST!”
