Motion

We the Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship seek Green Sanctuary certification.

We

have discussed and engaged in many important projects for both our Fellowship and our community; we have made a difference in peoples’ awareness and perspective on humans’ relationship to our environment. Green Sanctuary Certification will celebrate that accomplishment and inspire us to continue on our new

path of sustainability and leadership in the community.
