Actions We Have Taken to Follow Our Mission

 

  1. The Committee was represented by Bev Rawling at the People’s Climate March in September 2014

  2. The Committee was represented by Judi Northen at the 2014 and 2015 Manitowoc Earth Days, where destructive mining petition signatures were obtained and forwarded to our representatives (2014) and a wide variety of educational materials were made available to the attendees (2014, 2015).

  3. Senator Card Signing in the Library--a good number of members signed their names to cards which were then directed to our Senators asking for environmentally beneficial action regarding destructive mining practices.

  4. GLOBE Survey was sent out requesting feedback from congregation regarding what areas or topics they would like to see us focus on.

  5. We will develop and submit to the Board a plan related to improvement and implementation of environmental practices at the Fellowship 

  6. “A Conversation with the Environment Committee” took place at Earth Day Sunday Service, April 26, 2015.  Each Committee member spoke on the subject of climate change.
