Thanks to everyone who attended the Dances of Universal Peace on Thursday.  It was a powerful experience!

We are entering Week 2 of Climate Justice Month.  This week's theme is Reckoning with and grieving the loss we are confronting, as well as other impacts of climate change.

Now we have another chance to participate in this national campaign.  On Wednesday April 1st at 6 pm, come to the Community Night Dinner, grab a plate of food and join us in the BUF library.  We will be showing the film "Origins: Our Roots. Our Planet. Our Future" starting at 6:15 pm.  Sponsored by our Food Justice Team.  Dinner costs only $5 for adults, $4 for children and $12 for families.  Movie showing is Free.

"Origins" is a journey into where we came from.  

Four years, 19 countries, and 24 experts in anthropology, medicine, ecology, and health have exposed the roots of our DNA and how to prevent the modern world from making you sick.

How can we live a healthy life in this modern world without poisoning the planet?  
How can we support natural systems as conscious consumers and be part of the solution?  

The world's top health and green experts come together in this beautiful movie to answer that very question.

From World Water Day (March 22) to Earth Day (April 22), we will embark on a spiritual journey for climate justice. PLEASE join us by following us on this blog (enter your email address to the right under "Follow By Email") and by participating in as many of the activities as possible.  We hope to have something for everyone.  More events could be added, so check back periodically.

Climate Justice Month is a Commit2Respond initiative.  Commit2Respond is a UUA/UUSC collaboration and has grown to include a number of UUA affiliated organizations. Their efforts are to move and motivate UUs and other people of faith and conscience to act for climate justice. 

Climate Justice is working with those who disproportionately bear the burdens of climate change, who are leaders in the search for solutions, and their rights and needs are the bedrock of our collective climate justice work. This means working with and developing partnerships with communities of color, poor communities and other underrepresented groups who are already being impacted by climate change.
