Truth in Action – 24 Hours Reality UU Web-Marathon

What if we all started talking — going from neighbor to neighbor, community to community, business to business — and collectively opening our selves to the reality that climate change is an urgent crisis that demands urgent action? Your UU colleagues, trained as Climate Reality Leaders are doing just that.

On Wednesday, November 20th, 2019, from 1 pm – 6 pm Eastern, a webinar was called to hear about how Unitarian Universalists are embodying Truth in Action.

This is part of the annual “24 Hours of Climate Reality” event organized by The Climate Reality Project. A tree will be planted for every person who participates in this global educational effort!  Below is the schedule of presentations taking place tomorrow — join whenever you are able!
