CLICK HERE to watch the Second Hour informational forum on the issue of stopping the Line 3 Pipeline in Canada (Zoom meeting facilitated by Gary White on June 13, 2021). With the climate crisis continuing to worsen, no more fossil fuel infrastructure can be built if we are to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees C. Yet, the Canada-based energy conglomerate, Enbridge, has begun construction of the Line 3 oil pipeline that would run from the oil sands of Alberta to Superior, WI some 1,000 miles away. The pipeline is planned to run through Native American land in Minnesota. Indigenous water protectors and thousands of climate activists have been on the ground to stop the project.

The New Sanctuary Movement
Inspired by many examples of Sanctuary throughout the ages, most particularly the sanctuary movement of the early ‘80s for Central American refugees, the New Sanctuary Movement (NSM) is a national effort by religious leaders and congregations of all faith traditions to respond to the crisis of families being broken by an ineffective and unjust immigration system.

Social Justice is defined as “… promoting a just society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity.” Through our common humanity we recognize that we all have a right to equitable treatment, support of our human rights, and a fair allocation of community resources. Learn more about Social Justice issues through our regular educational classes which appear on our Social Justice calendar and through our Service and Education Opportunities.
Without being tied to tangible and realistic action, words cannot bring about meaningful change. Join us as we work to become the hands, feet and face of God, making Social Justice a lifestyle we live; not a thing we do.
