Climate Justice is a top focus of the United Methodist Women national organization. Because women and children are disproportionately affected by the consequences of climate change, each UMW unit is encouraged to act locally and globally to become caretakers of God's creation.
Last year, UMW at FUMC Elgin committed to being a Green Unit. We pledged to reduce our unit's impact on others and work toward implementing environmentally safe practices at UMW events.
To lead our efforts and guide our actions, a Green Team was created. All members who are passionate about environmental issues are encouraged to be a part of the Green Team.
