“The Green Team’s advocacy goal is to realize environmental justice,” explained Sung-Ok Lee, executive secretary for community action for the Women’s Division and coordinator of the program. “Environmental justice is the fair treatment and involvement of all people — regardless of race, ethnicity or economic status — in the decision-making process on environmental public policies.” (from “United Methodist Women kicks off Green Team Environmental Justice Program” by Kelly Martini). Patricia Madsen is our local representative to this team. See Green Team resources here.
