Climate Change – Advocacy Team

Climate Change – Advocacy Team

We organize the members, friends, and youth of the congregation to advocate with governmental and business leaders for local, state, national, and international legislation and programs relating to climate change through UU associational partnerships (the UU Service Committee, UU Legislative Ministry of Maryland, UUs for Social Justice, UU UN Office) as well as other non-governmental organizations and advocacy groups.

Activities

2020 Election

The most effective ways to make our collective voices and values about the Climate Crisis heard is to elect public officials who will listen.  2020 is a CRITICAL election year.

Please join our UUCC The Vote non-partisan faith effort to energize our congregations and neighbors, educate and mobilize voters, fight voter suppression and rally around key social justice issues like the Climate Crisis.

Also, if you want to get involved via 350.org, take their 2-minute survey of what is important to you and how you may want to plug in.
