PRACTICE BEGINNING GATHERINGS BY ROOTING THEM IN A SENSE OF PLACE
Consider beginning meetings with an acknowledgement of local history: "We are grateful to be gathered here in the _____ watershed, which we share with a diversity of plants and creatures, including _______ (name a few species). We acknowledge that this land is the traditional territory of the _________ peoples. May we nurture our relationship with all our neighbors, and our shared responsibilities to this watershed where we gather today."

PUBLIC POLICY ACTION: DEFEND THE ANTIQUITIES ACT
Our public lands conserve our spiritual, cultural, and natural heritage. These places where our communities can learn, play, and pray become Sabbath spaces – both for people and for God’s creation. Right now, some lawmakers are considering undermining the public policy that allows U.S. presidents to conserve our heritage: The Antiquities Act of 1906. Please urge your members of Congress to protect and uphold this important law.
Email Congress online or print and circulate a petition.
