The science supporting climate change is irrefutable. As faithful stewards of the earth, we must act. Our efforts, combined with the efforts of millions of others, can make a difference. I invite you to join me one month from today in bringing attention to this global issue.
On Sunday, September 21, 2014, an estimated 1 million people will gather in New York City for the People’s Climate March in advance of the United Nations Climate Summit. I will be there representing Unitarian Universalism. Join me in NYC, and together we will show world leaders that there is deep concern for the environment and that we are ready to engage with them to face the challenges ahead.
All UUs are invited to gather at the Community Church of New York Unitarian Universalist following the march to debrief and consider next steps. Learn more and rsvp.
The People’s Climate March is also our kick-off to a new UU initiative addressing climate change. A collaboration of the UUA and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, with the support of the UU Ministers Association, UU Ministry for Earth, and other groups, Commit2Respond is a movement of UUs taking action for climate justice in 2014–2015 and beyond. Have you signed up?
Unitarian Universalists are often called “the people who show up.” Let’s show up on September 21, 2014, in New York and make this the springboard for ongoing attention and efforts to care for the earth.
The Rev. Peter Morales
President, Unitarian Universalist Association
