Justice

Our response to injustice calls us to personal and social transformation

We see spirituality and justice as one and commit ourselves to live this out in all our relationships. Systemic evils deprive people of their intrinsic rights and working to help restore these rights is the work of justice.

Stop the Williams Pipeline NY

Earlier this year the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) did the right thing and listened to science and the people, and rejected the William NESE Pipeline.  But National Grid is refusing to listen to climate science or to us, and is instead trying to build smaller, more distributed projects to bring fracked gas into NYC as their plan B. One of those projects is to expand their Greenpoint liquified fracked gas storage facility on Newtown Creek and they’ve recently applied to the DEC for an air permit to build two new vaporizers there.

Write your comment to the Department of Environmental Conservation, who oversees permitting for this project, and works under the direction of Governor Cuomo. We are also addressing Honorable Phillips at the DPS here.
