As Unitarian Universalists, four of our core principles are:
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part;
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
- Justice, equality and compassion in human relations;
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.
The Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of New Jersey calls on the State Legislature to override Governor Christie’s veto of A575/S253 that bans the transportation in New Jersey of waste material from fracking processes. Our existence, and that of all living things on earth, depends upon water. As humans, we seek justice and equity in society through the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process. Thus, we are called to take action and stop the contamination of our water that occurs whenever fracking is used.
