The Social Justice Committee and the Environmental Covenant Group are working to establish the church as a "Green Sanctuary." This Seventh Principle Project will attempt to bring the church into compliance with environmentally friendly practices. By joining the Green Sanctuary Committee you can make a difference locally and globally.
Our church has committed to using Fair Trade Coffee during coffee hour. In doing so, we are participating in the UUSC Coffee Project, which is a partnership between the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) and Equal Exchange. This partnership supports small farmers in the developing world to earn a living wage for their work. Buy Fair Trade Coffee and sell or give it to your friends and family.
During the Christmas season, we sold over $2,500 worth of fair trade crafts on consignment from Colores del Pueblo, a fair trade organization dedicated to directly assisting Latin American artisans and farmers. You can help make our marketing efforts expand.
The church is a member of the Merrimack Valley Project, a regional coalition of forty member churches and synagogues, labor union locals, and tenant organizations whose purpose is to "promote the welfare of the Merrimack Valley region through the joint efforts of organizations committed to the dignity and freedom of all men and women without regard to religious creed, national origin, social station, race, or color." Join us as we participate in the activities of this vital justice organization.
