The Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth has created a five-session environmental justice curriculum. Called “Our Place in the Web of Life,” the curriculum was developed to help congregations meet the environmental justice requirement of the Green Sanctuary program. It provides an introduction to environmental justice concepts and a process to identify community needs so that a congregation can develop a local justice project. The curriculum, designed by Dr. Mark Hicks of the Meadville Lombard Theological School, also emphasizes racial and ethnic relationships in doing environmental justice work.
UUMFE, an independent affiliate of the UUA, supports congregations in environmental justice work, including Earth Day activities and providing environmental resources for religious education and worship. (From the InterConnections Tipsheet, posted 2/10/2012)
