Commit2Respond Film Series

Join Commit2Respond for Climate Justice Month at USSB!

From World Water Day (March 22) to Earth Day (April 22), Unitarian Universalists and other people of faith and conscience will embark on a spiritual journey for climate justice. Individuals, families, groups, and congregations will get faith-filled resources, engage in powerful practices throughout the month, learn together, and discern how to most effectively shift to a low carbon future, advance human rights, and grow the climate justice movement. Commit2Respond is a new climate justice initiative led by UU groups across our faith movement. Get details at to be inspired, and get connected with other people of faith and conscience committed to climate justice, and commit to long-term actions that will help save our world and for Climate Justice Month daily messages. Info also at the SPAN table Sundays. This is your movement. You have the power to make a difference. How will you respond?
