The Environmental Justice Ministry Group is a faith-based group that examines, increases awareness, and acts around the most pressing problems of climate change and environmental justice. All are welcome to join. 

September 11: Monthly Meeting featuring Helen Smith, Policy Advocate, Creation Justice Ministries, on Environmental Justice and the Church 

Environmental Justice is not always seen as a religious concern, but it should be at the forefront of our religious practice. We have a responsibility to care for God's creation. Churches have the unique ability to both support and further the health and biodiversity of God's creation by focusing on the ways that we as humans can better care for the Earth and take responsibility for the ways that we have harmed the Earth in the past and present, and how churches and communities of faith can respond through advocacy.

As Policy Advocate, Helen leads Creation Justice Ministries’ work advocating to better protect, restore, and rightly share God’s lands and waters. In this work, Helen organizes faith leaders, creates policy resources, and works with partners to achieve meaningful policy change for God’s planet and people. Prior to CJM, Helen worked for the National Religious Partnership for the Environment. Helen has been an international volunteer building churches, schools and clinics.
