Climate Justice Month
From World Water Day to Earth Day (March 22 to April 22), Unitarian Universalists and other people of faith and conscience take action to build resistance to climate change and add our moral voices to the movement for climate justice.
Organized by Commit2Respond, the Unitarian Universalist (UU) climate justice coalition, individuals, families, groups, and congregations engage in powerful practices throughout the month, learn together, and take action to shift to a low carbon future, advance the human rights of frontlines communities, and grow the climate justice movement. Get the details and sign up for Climate Justice Month. If you’re part of a congregation, sign up your congregation or group and get on the map of UU Earth Day services and other events!
Be inspired, get connected with other people of faith and conscience committed to climate justice, and commit to long-term actions that will help save our world. This is your movement. You have the power to make a difference. How will you respond?
What is Commit2Respond?
Commit2Respond is a coalition of Unitarian Universalists and other people of faith and conscience working for climate justice, launched out of the People's Climate March in New York City in September 2014.
Commit2Respond's grounding in climate justice means we recognize the central role inequality plays in the current crisis. We envision a future where the most vulnerable are protected from these heart-breaking consequences.
As individuals, congregations, and organizations, we commit to take action in each of three ways:
- shift to a low carbon future
- advance the human rights of frontlines communities
- grow the climate justice movement
Unitarian Universalists see ourselves as one thread in a single fabric of all existence. We embrace nature’s beauty and are in awe of its power. We have a responsibility to care for our home and stand together with those most affected by pollution, environmental destruction, increasingly severe natural disasters, and other impacts of climate change.
