Climate Justice Month

Three generations support environmental justice at the People's Climate March in New York City

Three generations support environmental justice at the People's Climate March in New York City

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. 

Individuals, families, groups, and congregations can engage in powerful practices throughout the month, learn together, and take action to shift to a low carbon future, advance the human rights of frontline communities, and grow the climate justice movement. 

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?

As individuals, congregations, and organizations, we commit to take action in each of three ways:

  1. shift to a low carbon future
  2. advance the human rights of frontline communities
  3. 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.
