What are we as UU’s to do about equity and our interconnected existence? For many years we’ve read about the environment, studied racial and cultural justice, talked about both of them, put up solar panels and Black Lives Matter signs, and gone to marches. But what have we DONE? Of course, more than that short list...but not enough. It’s time to listen to, and partner with, those most impacted by environmental and climate devastation. We need to figure out how to effectively collaborate with communities on the front line, and find out how to provide truly helpful climate and environmental action.
