Fighting Climate Change Globally

How can UUs in New York support leaders for Climate Justice in the Pacific Islands? Join us to hear how your voice – and your congregation- can be a critical part of the advocacy for change.

On Tuesday, October 4, 2022, NY UU Collaborates was honored to host a profound forum, “Fighting Climate Change- Student Movements Globally.”

The event was facilitated by Ember Kelley, Director of Religious Education at Fourth Universalist in New York City, and held a grounding opening prayer by Rev. Jennifer “Jo” VonRue (she/her/hers) Minister at May Memorial Unitarian Universalist Society in Syracuse, NY.

The core of the event was a deeply moving panel discussion between Salote Soqo, of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, and Solomon Yeo, of Pacific Island Students Fighting Climate Change, moderated by Rev. Daniel Lawlor.

A key question was, “How can UUs support leaders for Climate Justice globally?”

Please listen to this profound recording to consider how your voice – and your congregation- can be a critical part of the advocacy for change.

Sponsored by: NY UU Collaborates, a growing working group including UU Ministry for Earth, Fourth Universalist Church, and NY UUs for Justice. NY UU Collaborates is working together to organize a series of four forums on Zoom this year on the climate crisis and our UU faith life.
