Statement of Belief

Climate Justice & Action

UU Mass Action is committed to the abolition of fossil fuels and the use of renewable clean energy. We believe that the technology is available to make this change, all that is lacking is the political will.  We believe that we cannot wait for our elected officials to take action – the people must take action.  A change of this magnitude requires a shared vision and effective organizing.  We will only achieve this vision if we work together.  In the words of Naomi Klein, “It’s going to take everyone to change everything.”
