MN Interfaith Power & Light recently launched Communities in Climate Action every Wednesday night at 6 pm at Gandhi Mahal. Congregations are invited to be co-sponsors. I think it would be most excellent if the MUUSJA environmental working group were to co-sponsor an evening every three months or so, including once this summer. The weekly event was held for the first time on Thursday, May 29, and has continued the two successive Wednesdays. Because of conflicts I have not yet been able to attend, but I intend to check it out next Wednesday, June 18. It would be great to see other folks from our group. Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com Join Us! Information for Co-Sponsors As we face the biggest problem of our time, climate change, coming together as communities of concerned, engaged citizens is vital to sustaining our work, and ourselves. Communities in Climate Action is a way to join together as diverse communities working to create a just, sustainable future and support that vital work through ethical eating. Gandhi Mahal has committed to donating 10% of their proceeds to organizations in the Climate Movement every Wednesday. Gandhi Mahal is leading the way with a clear commitment to climate action,using recyclables, compostable containers, and turning cooking oil into biodiesel. Now they are making history by building an aquaponic system in the restaurant. Each week, we will come together to celebrate and support the work that we are doing together to build a just a sustainable future for all. It is our hope that these nights will serve not only as a fundraising opportunity, but as a hub of climate activism and environmental justice work in the Twin Cities. We would love to partner with your organization or faith community to host community conversations at the restaurant as a way to collaborate and support each other's work, and share the proceeds of the night. Together, we will create space and a program that is truly inclusive and supportive of the diverse communities working to build a just, sustainable future for all!
