The Earth Justice Associates (EJA) program provides ways to help protect and restore the earth and its natural resources. We share a special concern for the ways in which environmental degradation more severely affects the disenfranchised and less powerful. Our activities are educational, community-building, justice-oriented, and fun!
EJAs help our congregation live out its commitment to the interdependent web of life by installing energy-saving light bulbs, conducting energy audits, improving the congregation’s energy efficiency, running its recycling program, and moving toward installation of solar panels at the church.
In April of 2012, EJAs presented an innovative workshop called “Active Hope for a Sustainable Future” led by Joanna and Jack Macy to 70 church and community members. Learn more about sustainability through EJA’s future presentations or stop by the EJA table after Sunday services and check out a book or video from our lending library.
Bring your concerns and interests to an Earth Justice meeting held the first Sunday of each month in the 3rd floor open area in front of the church office. For additional information about EJA work, contact EJA co-chair Bret Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
