(formerly known as the Environmental Justice Committee)
Green Sanctuary status was awarded to First Parish Brewster Unitarian Universalist on February 8, 2014. We are in the process of broadening the committee’s scope to include Environmental Justice as well as the three other cornerstones of the UUA’s Green Sanctuary Program: sustainable living, worship and celebration, and religious education. This year, our primary focus will be to educate – and re-educate – the congregation and its various committees and boards about Green Sanctuary principles – with the goal of having these principles integrated into our day-to-day FPBUU experiences. We will also be establishing and building connections with other UU congregations on the Cape as well as UUA programs such as UU Mass Action and Commit 2 Respond, working collaboratively to expand the Green Sanctuary Program beyond the walls of our Meeting House.
