Our Fellowship acts to promote and preserve environmental justice.
The seventh UU Principle is “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” At UUFF we help each other to act as environmental stewards. We strive to live “green” as individuals, as a community, and with other groups on the Cape and around the planet. [An article by Reverend Bob Murphy of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tarpon Springs, FL: Environmental Justice and the Unitarian Universalists]
