New Environmental Justice Curriculum Showcase: Our Place in the Web of Life:
Thursday, June  21st, 1:30-3:00 pm at the Hyatt, Remington ABC.

Pam Sparr, one of the designers of UUMFE’s new EJ Curriculum, will acquaint participants with its unique features and the opportunities it offers to strengthen a congregation’s environmental, racial, and economic justice ministries. Congregations using this program will share their experiences. (Note: This workshop is not listed in the GA program.)

Immigration & Environmental Justice, UUMFE’s own GA workshop.
Friday, June 22, 9:00-10:15 am at Phoenix Convention Center, 121 AB.

Panelists Rev. Earl W. Koteen, Amy Petré Hill, Lara Helfer, and Linda Herrera will discuss how environmental degradation (polluted air, land, and water; ocean acidification; severe storms and droughts; mass extinctions; melting glaciers) disproportionally impacts disadvantaged communities and contributes to migration and injustice. Find out how your congregation and state advocacy network may work with environmental justice organizations and coalitions addressing these issues.

EJ Curriculum – Strategy and Skill-building session:
Friday June 22nd, 1:00-3:00 pm at the Hyatt, Remington ABC.

Pam Sparr leads a follow-up to Thursday’s workshop on UUMFE’s new EJ Curriculum. Learn by doing! We’ll use a fun and powerful participatory analysis-mapping tool (from the new curriculum) to build strategies for UU congregations to have greater impact with their environmental, racial, or economic justice work. (Note: This workshop is not listed in the GA program.)

National UU Environmental Justice Strategy and Networking:
Sunday, June 24th, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm at the Hyatt, Remington ABC.

How can UU’s be more effective in impacting the environmental issues facing our Earth and local communities?  This strategy and networking session will build on what is happening locally and regionally to see how we can strengthen our UU voice and actions, including giving direction to the UU Ministry for Earth Board.  It will include a very brief UUMFE annual meeting to elect new Board members and honor Guardians of the Future.  A very brief UUMFE business meeting will be included and light refreshments will be served. (Note:This event is not listed in the GA program.)
