Environmental Justice

Despite our diverse histories and traditions, the member denominations of the Maine Council of Churches share a vision that we humans have an obligation to protect and nurture God’s creations, from the smallest microbes in the sea to the planet as a whole. As we advocate for the most vulnerable people through our Economic Justice programs, so we advocate for and serve our fragile Earth through our Environmental Justice programs. Much of our work is done in conjunction with the Environmental Priorities Coalition, a group of 25 Maine organizations that share common values on the environment. The Coalition’s website includes a description of legislative issues the Coalition is following as a well as information on how to contact legislators.
