Our Environmental Justice Ministry in Wilmington, Delaware is a lesser-known ministry at SsAM, work which grew out of Michele Roberts’ preaching at SsAM during the Season of Creation several years ago. An official description of Delaware Concerned Residents for Environmental Justice appears below. The portion of the group which includes SsAM members is co-chaired by Paulyne Webster and Linda Whitehead.
Environmental Justice advocacy is needed now more than ever. As we go into the world, as followers of Christ we care for all. We would like you to lend a hand.
Participation in this ministry is also an excellent way to take SsAM beyond our walls and to get to know some of our neighbors. Please speak with Paulyne Webster or Linda Whitehead for more information.
Monthly meetings occur at 6:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month at SsAM (719 N. Shipley Street, Wilmington, DE 19801). You may park in the lot next door or on the street. Enter through the Parish Hall doors. All are welcome.
Delaware Concerned Residents for Environmental Justice (DCR4EJ)
Delaware Concerned Residents for Environmental Justice (DCR4EJ) is an environmental and economic justice ministry that the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew facilitated in forming. DCR4EJ was formed as a call to action in response to a Seasons of Creation service held to honor the Rights of Mother Earth in 2011.
DCR4EJ is an environmental and economic justice collective consisting of church members, community members and individuals as well as justice-based allies and friends aligned on a mission to inform and empower communities to take action to protect the fundamental rights to clean air, water, land and food.
The DCR4EJ is an affiliate member of the Environmental Justice Health Alliance for Chemical Policy Reform, a national environmental and economic justice collective. DCR4EJ meets every 3rd Wednesday 6:30-8:00 pm at SsAM. Feel free to join us! Contact Paulyne Webster or Linda Whitehead at SsAM for more information or use the contact page on this website.
