It Takes All of Us: UU Community Call to End Fossil Fuels
Join this rich conversation with a group of Unitarian Universalist lay leaders, ministers, and community organizers from across Minnesota and our national body. In this community call, we will share the current priorities of the Line 3 movement and developments in how we can stop all fossil fuel projects, including through divestments. We will deepen into some of the stories of the climate movement from this past summer and fall as Unitarian Universalists put their values and shared UU Principles into action. We will reflect together on the different ways we are moved to protect the earth from climate chaos and transition to a just economy based on renewable energy.
Be part of this virtual Unitarian Universalist community call on Monday, December 6 at 7:00 pm CST to learn, share, engage, and act.
This event is part of a series of community calls hosted by MNIPL and GreenFaith with leaders who are organizing their communities of faith and conscience to take action on ending pipelines and fossil fuel projects. People from all traditions and spiritual practices are welcome to attend, although this event on December 6 will specifically center Unitarian Universalists. It takes all of us to build back a fossil free world! #Faiths4Climate
