Be Just. Be Green. – New resource for being “green”

Betty Spencer Dickey, Western Jurisdiction Guide

Betty Spencer Dickey, Western Jurisdiction Guide

It’s great to be back in the District and into the environmental arena that I love, in my new role as Jurisdictional Guide for the Western Jurisdiction. I will be available to help connect the National issues on Climate Action with the Western Jurisdiction, Conference, District and local UMW.

To make it even easier for you to learn to be an advocate for our planet, we have developed a new web page, Climate Justice: Be Just. Be Green.  Here you can find more information about how to protect our environment, tools like the “13 Steps to Sustainability,” and how to become an Advocate.

Check out these resources, and think about environmental and climate justice as they relate to planning UMW events and programs.  Feel free to connect with me if you have questions or need more info!  (My contact info is on the Climate Justice webpage.)
