Climate Change:  Sharing and Living the Vision
If you are looking for resources and information on the challenges facing the environment and the human community, as well as ways and opportunities to stay involved and make your voice heard, look through this A-Z list of local, national, and international organizations.

Indigenous Peoples of Western New York

As we move through challenging times of societal upheaval, we are inspired by the wisdom of Indigenous people who have been living in harmony with the earth and all creation for generations. Here is a list of resources from our Native American history and culture – especially the Haudenosaunee on whose land we live. We honor and celebrate their presence among us and their special contributions.

Racism:  Standing in Solidarity

As we face the racial tensions that are so urgent and critical at this time in our country, we offer here some materials for white people to learn about black history, white privilege and so much more to inform us as we respond in solidarity with knowledge and integrity. This is a dynamic document so please check it periodically to see new entries, and please send us materials to include.  Also, see more about this topic in our recent blogs here.

Environmental Justice Information & Resources
Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. We have updated the Environmental Justice section of our website to include a comprehensive list of resources for education and action. 

Resources For Healing the Divides

Many people have expressed how challenging it is to stay grounded and non-reactive in political conversations, especially with people who have different opinions, or even people on our “side” who react in ways we do not support. We are happy to offer "Healing the Divides: Depolarization Resources for Challenging Times" to help you grow in your capacity and skill in having difficult conversations, bridging divides, growing compassion, and reducing hate.

Expand your perspective and deepen your understanding: here's a list (with descriptions) of even more articles, books, and movies for your consideration.
