UMW Green Team
“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. See Green Team resources here.
As United Methodists, we understand our call to transform the world involves personal, social and civic righteousness.
