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.

Current Activities

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.

Annual Climate Meeting

UUCC Climate Crisis Annual Meeting & Call To Action took place via Zoom on November 15, 2020.

Each November, the UUCC Climate Crisis (“2U4C”) steering team takes stock of the past year and plans for the upcoming year.  After a brief review of this past pandemic-focused year, we looked ahead to 2021.   

This was people’s chance to get involved and help set our direction for 2021! All attendees were given a chance to vote and volunteer for the topics they want to participate in for 2021.  We will proceed in 2021 with all topics which get a critical mass of support.
