Environmental Justice Integrated Throughout Your Green Sanctuary Work
Because of its foundational orientation, environmental justice work should be integrated into your entire Green Sanctuary Action Plan, so it is important to be aware of its implications early on in the process.
Integrating Environmental Justice Into Your Green Sanctuary Plan
It is important for your Green Sanctuary team to think holistically and synergistically when conducting your preliminary analysis/audit and preparing your proposed Green Sanctuary Action Plan. We strongly recommend that you think expansively and see how environmental justice can be integrated into all the aspects of the plan, not simply put into the community action section. We encourage you to think creatively about how you might review worship, religious education, building plans and policies, and various existing community ministries with an eye to how they might connect with and contribute to the environmental justice action component.
