Climate Justice

Climate Justice

In the spirit of the 7th Principle of Unitarian Universalism: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part,” the Earth and Climate Action Ministry Team’s mission is to promote awareness of the environmental and climate crisis, especially within our own congregation; to advocate for climate/environmental-friendly government policies; to promote environmental justice and support communities that are more vulnerable to climate change and environmental impacts; and to form linkages with other organizations to support effective action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and harm to the environment.
