Environmental Justice

At the 2017 Annual Meeting, the Congregation voted to adopt Climate Change & Environmental Justice as one of our congregational social justice efforts. The Environmental Justice Team is currently working on 1) renewing our status as a Green Sanctuary Congregation, 2) reviving our Green Team with a focus on renewables’ planning, reuse & recycling, leaving no carbon footprint, and ethical eating, 3) educating the congregation on issues, 4) participating in issues such as member service and advocacy for carbon tax (with Citizens Climate Lobby), Water Is Life rally, March for Science, supporting pipeline protesters, and opposing open burning at Radford Arsenal, and 5) supporting Spiritual Care for the Earth.
