Two projects that are developing in our area that may interest congregations in other areas. I can share information with congregations that are involved with environmental justice…….
1) We do a lot of “energy justice” work with low-income people. “Energy justice” work begins with the awareness that energy use is a human right. Some folks waste too much energy while others – the homeless, for example – need to consume more energy in order to survive. This is an environmental justice concern that needs more attention, in order to solve the climate change problem;


2) Because of the impact of climate change and other environmental problems,

congregations are becoming more involved with emergency preparedness and emergency response work. Special attention is given to vulnerable groups, including children and the elderly, people with disabilities, immigrants and migrant workers, etc.


“If you want environmental peace, work for environmental justice.”
