FIND US UNDER OUR UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST WESTSIDE CONGREGATION BANNER.
Join this community event coinciding with the People’s Climate March and the UN Climate Meeting in New York. This is a 1.5 mile walking pilgrimage to various downtown Abq locations for short creative presentations – making connections between climate change and immigration, refugees, health, food, water, national and international security, children, etc. Young, old & families are all welcome. Organized by a diverse coalition including human services, faith communities and environmental groups.
UUWC will be there in solidarity with UUs nationwide and in response to UUA President Peter Morales’ call to action.
From the Rev. Peter Morales’ letter:
P.S. Are you still not sure about the need to do something right now for climate change? Watch “Disruption,” a documentary about the devastating consequences of inaction in the face of climate change.
P.P.S. Don’t forget to sign up for Commit2Respond, a movement of UUs taking action for climate justice in 2014-2015 and beyond.
