“I know it’s very hard for the Secretary-General to get 200 nations to come together and decide on one thing, but we need the political will, the political commitment to fight this." - Fiji Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama
In June over 1500 volunteers from around the US traveled to Washington, DC, to show political will for climate legislation and advocate for a fee on emissions. They echoed this week's cover story in Time about the plight of island nations most vulnerable to rising seas. Read more at Sinking Islands Climate Change
Constituents of Rep. Lori Trahan have started a letter expressing support for a current carbon pricing bill. The letter reads as follows:
We, your constituents, see the climate crisis as an urgent and existential threat. We ask that you co- sponsor the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R.763) as an important step in addressing the climate crisis. It’s effective, protects working and lower-income families, creates jobs, and is revenue neutral.

Kirtan Event on June 26th at 7pm
Kirtan is a form of participatory, devotional call-and-response chanting which originated in India. When we sing together, we create a collective sacred attunement; and when we sing divine names and sacred syllables, our level of attunement is even higher. Singing kirtan is not about singing “well” or perfectly, but about the sacred act of using your own voice to connect with the divine. It's a very liberating practice for those who are uncomfortable with their own voices. No singing experience is necessary. All ages welcome. For more information

Who we are
We are a liberal religious community of people of all ages who hold diverse theological beliefs. We come not only from Harvard, but also from many surrounding towns. We gather together "in the spirit of love," to worship, to learn, and to care for one another. We come together both to be comforted and accepted for who we are, and to be challenged to transform and grow as moral and spiritual persons.
We believe in the value of personal experience and reason, and use both as we explore the wisdom of the world's religious traditions, seeking to find and make meaning for ourselves. We celebrate and honor the prophetic words and deeds of many of those who've come before us, which call us to serve not only one another, but also those outside of our community. We long for a world that is fair and just and filled with compassion, and we work to make it so.
We welcome you! We'd love to have you join us on our journey!
