What is “FaCT?”
West Shore FaCT is part of a larger group, FaCT Ohio: Faith Communities Together for a Sustainable Future. FaCT’s participants come from more than 40 faith communities from 16 counties in Ohio and 3 in West Virginia. Our community includes Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish congregations, along with members of more than ten other faith traditions. We are working together to protect our natural environment through education, outreach, collaborative efforts, and public actions.
Come and join us in confronting the problems that fossil fuel extraction causes for communities and families in rural, suburban, and urban areas. We explore sustainable living in many ways to protect the natural environment in which we all live.
West Shore FaCT meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays monthly at 12:15 p.m. at West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church in Rocky River.
