Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, your gift will be matched and doubled, up to a total of $20,000!

Your gift helps UUMFE provide spiritual nourishment, educational grounding, and community foundations for Unitarian Universalists to take bold, accountable action for environmental justice, climate justice, and the flourishing of all life. UUMFE’s most recent collaborative activities include:

  • Hosting the Harvest the Power Justice Convergence & Teach-In, a week of profound and intersectional programming to guide the UU community observance of Thanksgiving, the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims’ landing, and the Day of Mourning observance in Plymouth.
  • Supporting the UU Young Adults for Climate Justice (UUYACJ – a diverse network of UU activists aged 18 to 35) in hosting book clubs, learning cohorts, partnering with the UUs at the United Nations (UU@UN) for the Intergenerational Spring Seminar (April 9-11, 2021), and with Elders Climate Action to host an ongoing series of intergenerational climate justice dialogues. 
  • Supporting the Strengthen Local Climate Commitments (SLCC) campaign and collaborating with the UUA Green Sanctuary Climate Urgency Program to help UUs Create Climate Justice in the communities where you live, work and worship.

As UUMFE looks ahead to 2021, make a financial contribution today to ensure UUMFE can continue engaging UUs in meaningful, effective ways. Your gift helps UUMFE:

  • Convene a diverse and representative cohort of UUs and partners for a series of Create Climate Justice Visioning & Strategy Sessions in the coming months.
  • Launch UUMFE’s re-established Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) caucus in January, under the co-leadership of Paula Cole Jones, environmental justice expert and Eighth Principle Project co-founder, and Rashid Shaikh, air pollution expert. 
  • Provide programming opportunities and resources on the themes of healing and regeneration for Spring for Change – A Season of Sacred Activism, March 20 through May 23, 2021. 

Thank you for giving generously to help UUMFE keep our collective work going strong throughout the next year! 

Donate $120 or more (as a one-time gift or recurring donation of $10+ per month) and UUMFE will send you a gift: a copy of one of these “good reads” on this moment in climate change. (We’ll follow up with you to see which book you choose!)

                      

Dinosaur Dreaming: Our Climate Moment by retired UU minister Gail Collins Ranadive. UUMFE Program Director Aly Tharp describes Ranadive’s book as “…a vivid snapshot of our present predicaments and powerful lifelines in addressing the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.”

Climate Courage: How Tackling Climate Change Can Build Community, Transform the Economy, and Bridge the Political Divide in America by non-profit solar/clean energy executive Andreas Karelas. InSpirit, the UU book and gift store, shares, “More Americans care about climate change than we think—but in order to unite around solutions, we need a bold, courageous new narrative about creating a sustainable world focused on a brighter tomorrow.”
