Greetings to Members and Friends of UWF,
*Please note that our September program will be held at the church.*
Internationally, United Women in Faith organizations around the world accepted the challenge of learning and taking action on the effects of climate change in our communities.
Our local unit welcomes Andrew Epps who will be giving a presentation on Climate Justice on Monday, September 11 at 6:00pm at the Black River Falls United Methodist Church, 100 4th Street, Black River Falls. He is the son of Tom and Lois Epps and was born and raised in Black River Falls. He grew up in the BRF UMC. He currently works in Chicago at Sweet Water Foundation, a nonprofit organization that runs a two-acre community farm on the city’s South Side. Driven by values of regeneration and “small is beautiful,” Sweet Water has developed an intergenerational social justice practice that creates safe and inspiring places grounded in the local ecology. Andre graduated this spring from Cornell University with a degree in city planning where he focused on urban adaptation to climate change and community-led development.
He will be talking about the uneven impacts of climate change and how taking small actions can have big impacts that can heal ourselves and our communities. Andrew will be joining us through ZOOM technology as part of the United Women in Faith social action focus.
Everyone is invited to attend from the church and community. You are welcome to join us in the Fellowship Hall from 5:00pm-5:45pm and bring an “environmentally friendly” bag lunch to be followed by the presentation at 6:00pm in the church sanctuary.
A free will offering will be collected and given to the Sweet Water Foundation in support of their efforts.
Invite your friends and neighbors to join us on Monday, September 11. We look forward to seeing you.
Go Forward with God’s Blessing,
