Empowered by love, we transform ourselves, to preserve our world...
UU Earth Action
4th Sundays, 11:30 - 12:30pm
This group works to uplift our 7th Principle through Education, Advocacy, and Action. They welcome all new members, who wish to join them in loving our Earth, and invite new ideas on how to make our church and our community more eco-friendly.
The following organizations are not formally associated with the church, but are also working toward the same goals. As we coordinate and cooperate with groups such as these, our combined efforts will be more effective.
Local, Climate Focused Connections

We support a ban on fossil fuel infrastructure development and on fossil fuel exports. We support electric vehicles, solar power, labelled GMOs, a carbon tax and campaign finance reform.” Visit their website to learn more about local and national climate news, and for their meeting schedule.
