The Commit2Respond initiative began with the Peoples 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 re-commit 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 Peoples Climate Movement. The Washington, D.C. area UUs have some exciting events planned. We encourage UUs to participate in the mobilization to Washington, D.C. or in a sister march in your own corner of the world.
From Rev. Karen Brammer, Manager for the UUA Green Sanctuary Program:
I hope, with all my heart that on April 29th 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.
