Recognizing the interdependence of all life, Unitarian Universalists and our friends and allies are called as people of faith and conscience to heal and sustain the planet we call home. Join us!
The World is Hurting.
How Will You Respond?
Together We Can
We are diverse in spiritual belief, yet united in faith that a better world is possible and that our collective power can create change.
We commit to join together to shift to a low carbon future, advance the human rights of affected communities, and grow the climate justice movement.
Unitarian Universalists have been leaders in environmental efforts for decades. United in collective action, connected through partnership, we will change the world.

In times like these, we must practice and build capacity for rapid response.
THIS IS A CALL TO ARTS:
The General Assembly (GA) of the Unitarian Universalist Association begins in 3 weeks. Part of the full program is a nine-workshop climate justice program: The Seas Are Rising and So Are We.
In many of these workshops, as well as during other special programs of the GA, visual and theater arts will be used to evoke a reverence for the earth and commitment to creating a world of environmental justice. This effort is being led by UU young adults, and invites participation from everyone.
YOU CAN HELP: We need volunteers to mobilize locally to create tree banners that will come together at GA to form an “Environmental Justice Forest”. We also need volunteers during GA to help with arts performances and logistics.

GO FORTH to March and Witness and Connect
ART HAPPENINGS, PHOTO OPS, BREAKFAST and MORE
The UU Sponsors and Volunteers, especially the folks at All Souls Unitarian, have planned exciting events to amplify your experience in Washington, D.C. Check out the Schedule of Events and plan to join in with creativity and energy to connect and plan for our future engagements.
The Commit2Respond initiative began with the People’s Climate March in New York City, in September of 2014. On April 29th, we will march again with the People's Climate Movement to show the world that we recommit to respond to the urgency of averting climate chaos. The Unitarian Universalist Association, UU Service Committee, and UU Ministry for Earth have all signed on to be partner organizations for the People’s Climate Movement. We encourage UUs to participate in the mobilization to Washington, D.C. or in a sister march in your own corner of the world.
Events for UUs in Washington, D.C. are planned all day Saturday and Sunday, April 29-30. Check out the Art Builds that are happening April 22-23 and April 26-27 and the events at All Souls' Unitarian. RSVP at the button below. If you are in the area, volunteer opportunities are available.
“I hope, with all my heart that on April 29 thousands of UUs come to Washington D.C. I yearn for a coherent UU response to climate injustice, and right after the PCM in Washington, DC there will be opportunities to build this united campaign. I believe it matters that we march; to impact government, and as faith community, to hone ourselves, and our Big Love for the world. It will be good to be together.”
