UU Ministry for Earth supports Unitarian Universalists in connecting with others to grow our faith grounding and organize for climate and environmental justice. Get connected with one or more of these communities of practice:
Unitarian Universalism seeks world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all & respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Climate chaos will cause the exact opposite. Averting the climate crisis is critical to the vision and lived expression of Unitarian Universalism. To this end, the UU Ministry the Earth and the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Green Sanctuary Program & UU United Nations Office have launched the Create Climate Justice initiative.LEARN MORE
The Environmental Justice Practitioners Network (EJPN) is a community focused on learning about — and taking action at — the intersections of racial, class, and ecological justice. The EJPN hosts a webinar with a special guest speaker every month, and will soon be launching a new web portal for community organizing and small group ministries.
The UU Climate Action Network consists of Unitarian Universalist climate activists and Climate Action Teams (CATs) in communities and congregations all over North America. The network offers CATs and UU activists opportunities to share news, stories, resources, and calls to action.LEARN MORE

A small group of UUs, working collaboratively with the UU Ministry for Earth, are moved to form a new community: a caucus for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) focused on the intersections of racial, environmental and climate injustices. Facilitators Paula Cole Jones (All Souls Church, D.C.) and Rashid Shaikh (First Parish, Cambridge) have decided that the first 5 sessions are open to all, and will include both a BIPOC and a White caucus space.LEARN MORE
