Climate Change & Crisis

Climate Change & Crisis

About Us

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia, adhering to the Seventh Principle of the Unitarian Universalist Association—respect the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part—has established the UUCC Climate Crisis (2U4C) Team to explore all possible ways and means to mitigate the effects of climate change and preserve our planet.

HR1/S1

Please help support HR1/S1!  The fight for HR1/S1 (and HR4) has outsized implications for every social justice issue, including climate change, racial justice, health care, immigration, police reform, tax reform and economic justice.  If we cannot pass the popular pro-democracy HR1/S1 and HR4 bills, there is near zero chance that we can pass any other social justice bills!  Even if we did, if we don’t stop voter suppression and gerrymandering via HR1/S1 and HR4, any progress could be reversed in the next Congress.

Social Justice Impacts of the Climate Crisis

The climate crisis disproportionately adversely affects the poor and the less powerful, while it is disproportionately caused by the rich and powerful. In 2022, the UUCC Climate Crisis Team will focus the first half of 2022 on Climate Justice* and those affected, and the second half on the causes.
