The Temple of Understanding is working locally as well as internationally. As part of our interfaith work, we are attending and sharing webinars that feature passionate local professionals in the policy and local government arenas. Their eco-justice work manifests the values that we share.
We are fortunate that in the state of Massachusetts, where both TOU’s Executive Director Alison Van Dyk and Representative to the United Nations Grove Harris live, there are major efforts for eco-justice underway locally. People of faith are part of the political will that drives these initiatives, and collaborating in action is where hope is found or born. You might like to join the next webinar, coming up May 27 at noon (EDT) or view the recordings of previous webinars at your convenience.

Join us next Wednesday, May 27 for Session 8: Perspectives on Clean Energy & Climate Policy. We’ll be joined by a panel of three legislators representing citizens of MA at different jurisdictions. From land protection to environmental justice, renewable energy to climate resilience, the decisions made by our elected officials impact our communities and planet. We’ll hear the federal perspective from U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern, insight from the state level from MA State Representative Tom Golden, and the local angle from Quincy City Councilor Nina Liang.T
