On a beautiful and snowy morning at Germantown Monthly Meeting, more than 40 Friends gathered on Saturday, January 18th for a Thread Gathering to learn, share and discuss how to effectively address the environmental justice and climate crisis.
Over the course of the day, folks learned much more about the urgency of cutting emissions in half in the next ten years, and how to meet this challenge.
Together, participants built a vision of a sustainable energy future for the region and developed a set of action steps that can be taken as individuals, local meetings, and as a corporate body. Quakers have much to offer and want to contribute to solving this crisis.
The Eco-Justice Collaborative is asking Friends to make the climate crisis part of the PYM community’s corporate witness and will be taking a climate crisis ‘minute of concern’ to individual meetings and the Quaker Life Council for consideration this spring.
To be involved in future climate work or to receive follow-up information about this Thread Gathering, please email Pat Finley of the Eco-Justice Collaborative firstname.lastname@example.org.
