In October 2019, the Congregation adopted Climate Change Crisis as its principal focus for Social Responsibility activities for the next four years. This focus will more deeply affirm and promote our UU seventh principle: respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
The Environmental Action Working Group (EAWG) is committed to applying much of what has been learned from the previous four years of Indigenous Issues programming. We are leading and coordinating this crucial work across the congregation with the support of the Social Responsibility Coordinating Team and Council.
In February 2020, the EAWG initiated an online survey that asked important questions about the Climate Crisis to FirstU members to learn about their thoughts & feelings. That feedback was key in guiding our events while helping us all build a stronger, more aware and resilient community.
