Our Mission Statement
We make Care of Creation a central moral priority by working in solidarity to mitigate the climate emergency and to preserve and restore natural resources and biodiversity for present and future generations. We accomplish this in accordance with our values by educating ourselves and our faith communities, advocating for the environment, reducing our carbon and waste footprints, and adopting behaviors that will ensure the sustainability of life in all its diversity on Earth.
We welcome more faith groups in the region to become involved with our efforts. Join us at our next meeting on November 13 at 7 PM by Zoom. Email Barry Pendergrass (below) for a link.
The meeting in January will be on January, 22, 2024 at 7 PM at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany at 405 Washington Ave in Albany, NYSERDA's Susan Cotner will be our speaker and the talk is entitled "IRA, NYS and utility energy efficiency and renewable energy programs for residential homeowners and apartment dwellers."
