Green Sanctuary Committeegreen-sanctuary

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark became an accredited UUA Green Sanctuary congregation in 2011.

There are four focus areas for being a Green Sanctuary:

  1. Environmental Justice acknowledges that marginalized communities are often hit first and hardest by environmental crisis.  In partnering with these communities we are able to address human and environmental needs at the same time.  Environmental Justice emphasizes a shift from providing charity to working in solidarity with the communities most affected by climate change.
  2. Worship and Celebration is the heart of Unitarian Universalism.  As we work together towards a cleaner, more just and sustainable world, worship enables us to stay connected to each other and to celebrate the work we have accomplished.
  3. Religious Education shapes more than just minds. It shapes attitudes and practices.
  4. Sustainable Living requires us to treat the world more gently by using fewer resources and being mindful of the choices we make.

The Green Sanctuary Committee is in need of chair.
