Ecological Justice

The Temple of Understanding has been advocating for environmental justice for more than a decade, walking the talk about Interfaith values and our climate emergency. Most of our programs pursue eco-justice, and we engage on the local levels where we live. Currently, we are offering a monthly dialogue series among our other work.
