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.

Commit2Respond is at a turning point.
Three years ago, this campaign was launched with the goal of running from the 2014 People’s Climate March through the UUA’s 2017 General Assembly in New Orleans. We wanted to find out what we could accomplish if Unitarian Universalists and like-hearted people of faith and conscience came together in new ways for climate justice.
And what an amazing three years it has been! We’ve marched, we’ve witnessed, we’ve resolved, we’ve trained, we’ve joined hands with front-lines communities, we’ve taken direct action, we’ve worshipped, and we’ve made spiritual commitments.
Now it’s time to decide what happens next.

The Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly (GA) in New Orleans, June 21-25, 2017, was a powerful witness to the sacredness of Mother Earth and our interconnectedness as humanity and with the web of life.
In the days leading up to GA, heavy rains and strong winds of Tropical Storm Cindy poured through New Orleans, causing some to struggle with rescheduled or canceled transportation, and all to worry how the GA would whether the storm. As GA began and as Cindy made landfall, the storm reduced to a tropical depression that primarily impacted the state of Alabama. The rest of our week in New Orleans was characterized by high heat and humidity, and primarily blue skies.
