BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Commit 2 Respond

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) invites members and people of faith and conscience to commit to respond in three action areas:

  • Grow the climate justice movement
  • Advance the human rights of marginalized communities
  • Shift to clean and renewable energy

Commit2Respond starts now.  The period between World Water Day on March 22, 2015 and Earth Day on April 22, 2015 will focus on explicit commitments in the service of climate justice.  But these efforts require perseverance.  This vital work will continue through the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2015 and on through the 2017 UUA General Assembly.

Please spread the word about Commit2Respond.  Everyone, regardless of religious affiliation or lack thereof, is welcome to join us in our commitment to respond to the dangers of climate change.

    At the beginning of the UN Rio Climate Conference AOSIS (The Alliance of Small Island States) said, “If we don’t bring emissions down immediately, well before 2020, the opportunity to avoid the worst impacts, including the total inundation of small islands may be irrevocably lost.” These are the “marginalized communities” whose very existence depends on how quickly and how well the developed countries, especially the United States, achieve zero carbon emissions. This is a daunting challenge for Unitarian Universalists and others who are much longer on talk than action. Global warming is the ultimate social justice issue of the 21st century.
