We are facing a climate crisis. Climate change is already causing suffering for peoples around the world every day. Recognizing the interdependence of all life, we are called as people of faith and conscience to heal and sustain the planet we call home.
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.

Join the Environmental Justice Practitioners Network & Standing on the Side of Love on Thursday, February 9th, 4:30 Pacific / 7:30 PM Eastern, for a conversation on grounding for escalation.
- a rapid increase; a rise.
- an increase in the intensity or seriousness of something; an intensification.
Escalation as a concept will be explored through multiple lenses --- both as a community organizing and justice movement concept, and as a recognition of the increasing stress on environmental justice communities that we can anticipate as a result of the policies currently being pursued by the USA national government.
This webinar is part of the Environmental Justice Practitioners Network webinar series offered as a collaboration between the Unitarian Universalist Assocation (UUA) Green Sanctuary Program and the UU Ministry for Earth (UUMFE) Environmental Justice Collaboratory.
You can join via phone or internet, on the Zoom.us platform. Space is limited to 100 attendees, & RSVP is required. You can also RSVP to receive a recording of the webinar for later viewing and sharing.
