Learn Ways to Lower Your Congregation's Facilities Utility Bills
The Faith Communities Go Green Facilities Group is hosting an event for the religious community, June 7th at 7pm to 8:30pm
Learn Ways to Lower Your Congregation's Facilities Utility Bills, for professional advice on how to lower your house of worship’s utility bills and carbon footprint. Speakers will explain the different types of energy audits, how to know which one is right for your facility, how to develop a plan from simple do-it-yourself projects to changing light fixtures to installing renewable technology. You also will hear about funding options for nonprofit institutions. This educational program is designed for house of worship executive directors, maintenance supervisors and congregational members.
All faith traditions hold care of the natural world as an important part of their doctrine. Research shows that responsibility to care for the natural world, a moral and ethical issue, is best addressed within faith communities. Last summer several like-minded people of various faiths got together to organize a new organization in the Greater Cincinnati area. The purpose of our new organization, Faith Communities Go Green, one of Green Umbrella’s new impact teams, is to unite all faith communities in the tri-state area to work collaboratively to address the climate crisis and environmental justice.
This webinar will guide your faith community to walk the talk to care for creation.

The Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate (CRCAH)
Our community leaders often say: an act of hate towards any one community is an act of hate towards all.
As upstanders in our community, we assert that Cincinnati is no place for hate. With the re-emergence of white supremacy in the wake of the 2016 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Cincinnatians came together and formed the Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate (CRCAH). With rising division across our nation, it became critical to mobilize. Nineteen founding organizations created this non-partisan coalition; an allyship committed to vigilance against hate activity by supporting impacted communities and fostering acceptance, compassion, and justice for all across Greater Cincinnati. Today, there are more than 40 partner organizations working together to educate the community and monitor incidents of hate in our community. Our rapid response model allows us to effectively respond to hate activity within 24 hours by leveraging a diverse network as the connective tissue between communities thereby providing key resources specific to any particular community. Whether incidents occur on the street, in the workplace, or at school, CRCAH is able to tap into community leaders as needed.
Opinion: Hate Crimes and the Invisibility of Sikhs in America
By: Navkiran Chima
This opinionated-editorial was adapted from a speech given by Navkiran Chima, founder and President of Miami University’s Sikh Student Association, at the Candlelight Vigil on April 22nd for the victims of the FedEx hate crime / mass shooting in Indianapolis, IN held at the SEAL on Miami University’s campus. A link to an article covering the vigil can be found here: https://www.fox19.com/2021/04/22/miami-u-students-hold-vigil-sikh-lives-lost-indy-shooting/
The news of the shooting in Indianapolis was heartbreaking and infuriating. Gun violence is a repeated and unchanging problem in our country. The xenophobic, racist, and targeted nature of this shooting was an act of hate and white supremacy, but furthermore it was one against my community and my identity. My family and I are always potential victims.
It feels like we are in a vicious cycle of anti-Asian hate crimes and racist police brutality. The deaths of Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, George Floyd, and Ma’Khia Bryant were all products of systemic racism. The murder of eight people in this mass shooting, four of them Sikh, is a product of hate. When are we able to catch our breath? When does the disregard for black and brown bodies end? When will the proliferation of hate cease? It is devastating that we as a nation have become numb to these crimes due to their recurrent nature.
