This congregation shares in the longstanding Unitarian Universalist tradition of active involvement in issues of social justice as an integral expression of religious life. Many members work individually, and the congregation works collectively, on social justice issues with an emphasis this year on immigration, environment & climate, and food justice.
Mission: To foster a more just, equitable, and sustainable world through advocacy, education, support and service in collaboration with the wider community.
Vision: We envision a sustainable and loving world in which all live equally with justice, dignity and compassion.
Trex Challenge: The Jaffrey Climate Initiative is celebrating Earth Day with a series of events including the Trex Challenge, which is a way to recycle your plastic bags and plastic film.
Trex recycles plastics into durable materials for decking and railing. Residents may drop plastic bags and film in specially marked bins in town or Jaffrey residents may bring them to the Town Recycling Center. The collection will continue for six months with the twin goals of keeping plastics from litter and waste stream and collecting 500 pounds for a free bench from Trex for Conant High School/Jaffrey-Rindge Middle School. For more information, including the many types of plastic accepted, go to Jaffrey Climate Initiative on Facebook or Trex.com/recycling.
