Dominican Alliance: All Justice is Eco-justice
New Programs Promote Understanding of Water and Food Issues

EarthApril 23, 2007--- As the nation marks Earth Day and long before Al Gore’s academy award winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, the care of creation has been  the framework on which Dominicans do the work of justice as expressed in the document; Dominican Call to Justice.  Using this perspective, issues of peace and justice in the world are matters that affect planet Earth itself. Thus all work for justice is really a matter for eco-justice.

The thirteen member congregations of the Dominican Alliance have worked to foster this understanding for many years.

The Dominican Alliance congregations’ committee of EcoJustice Promoters have produced a series of programs to further the understanding that justice work is really work on behalf of eco-justice. Two of the programs are now available on CD for purchase for $25 each.  Both Food for the Journey and Water for the Journey provide ample material for flexible program formats that introduce all the major issues about food and water.  A third program Journey to the Land will be available by early next year.

If you are interested in purchasing these programs, please contact Marguerite Chandler, OP at mchandler@columbusdominicans.org.  She will direct you to the closest EcoJustice member.

EASY TIP: Take Shorter Showers
Showers account for 2/3 of all water heating costs. Save 350 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $99 per year.
