Report from the Social Action Committee

By Diane Collins

On the first Monday of every month the Social Action Committee includes an insert in the Sunday Order of Service. We hope to share our interests and actions with the Congregation in this way.

The January 6, 2019 insert addresses the climate crisis facing the world. Responding to climate change is the challenge of our times. Nothing else is even in the same league. Policy changes rest with our elected officials, federal and state. There is a promising bi-partisan bill before Congress now – H.R. 7173 – The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Our day to day choices can have impact too. Seven simple guidelines listed in the January insert about carbon emissions can guide us.

Our next two meetings of the UUCGF Social Action Committee are after Sunday service on Jan. 13th and Feb. 10th. We welcome your input.

Please consider volunteering at The Open Door meal site for those in financial need. Sign-up sheet is at the Social Action table in the Fellowship Hall.

Thank you!
