Environmental Justice

We advocate and we act...

for our environment.
for us all.

The MOJO Environmental Justice Group affirms that God’s creation breathes together; what impacts One impacts the Whole.  We commit ourselves and as a congregation to the intertwined responsibilities for caring for creation and seeking justice for the oppressed.  Given the current and future climate crisis endangering our environment, we commit ourselves with an urgent sense of calling to protect the planet for our children’s children.  We can all do more to reduce our footprint. We can use our voices individually and collectively.  We reject the global racism that transforms communities of color into poverty stricken environmental sacrifice zones.

Our Environmental Accomplishments

Awareness, Advocacy, and Action

Historically, the “Earthkeepers” focused on environmental education and had a focus internally, within the Church. Environmental Justice focuses on Awareness, Advocacy, and Action. Our primary focus is outside the Church. Learn more about our 3 A's below. 


Our work in environmental justice begins with a robust education to raise awareness of the various issues and complexities within the category of environmental justice. 

Educational Resources


Advocacy is defined as, "an activity by an individual or group that aims to influence decisions within political, economic, and social institutions." Our advocacy for environmental justice is multi-pronged and comprehensive thanks to many organizations doing the grassroots work in our communities and nation. 

Information on Advocacy


Our action for justice is the culmination of our work. At MPBC, you can find regular opportunities for action and engagement in the work of environmental justice.

Solar Panels at MPBC


Being a community leader on important issues of justice (in this case, environmental justice) has always been important to our Church, so one of the primary purposes of our solar panel system is to serve as a focal point for energy education, both for our congregation and members of the community. We give tours of the system and we have a “Solar Energy Display” mounted in the entrance of the Cornwell Center and is also available below.
