Environmental Justice

You are here: Home / Justice Teams / Environmental Justice

Mission Statement:

Our Mission is to explore what it means to live within a religious community on an imperiled Earth and join in efforts, both symbolic and explicit, to becoming stewards of the Earth.

As a member of PA Interfaith Power and Light, the UUPLAN Environmental Justice Team voted at their Feb. 9th, 2017 meeting to adopt the Policy Resolution on Fracking and Infrastructure authored by PA-IPL.

Key Goals for 2018:

  • Promote/support Citizen’s Climate Lobby efforts to get a carbon fee & dividend
  • Encourage churches /individuals to divest from fossil fuels
  • Support redistricting as gerrymandering is undermining all of our efforts to achieve our goals

Team Leaders:

Mark Lichty, UU Fellowship of the Poconos

Rachel Mark, Unitarian Church of Harrisburg
