In these sessions of the Environmental Justice Practitioners Network webinar series, Pamela Sparr expands upon some points made in her chapter of Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and Environment.

Pamela's chapter, "Transforming Unitarian Universalist Culture: Stepping Out of Our Silos and Selves" makes many great recommendations, including a call for Unitarian Universalists to act with grounding in prophetic imagination.

Pamela Sparr has served many key leadership roles in Unitarian Universalism; most recently, she served as UUSC's Associate Director for Justice-Building. Pamela also helped lead the Commit2Respond campaign, co-authored the UU Ministry for Earth's "Our Place in the Web of Life" curriculum, and was a lead organizer of the 2014 UUMFE Collaboratory event that inspired the creation of the Justice on Earth book.

Pamela Sparr runs a consulting business that helps nonprofits conduct strategic planning, develop and implement new programs and campaigns, and engage constituents in more powerful ways. Her work has included advising the Ford Foundation and international development organizations on anti-poverty strategies, conducting a gender audit of worldwide operations for the AFL-CIO’s Solidarity Center, and leading a national advisory group that worked on a justice-oriented sustainability roadmap for U.S. cities and towns. Pamela Sparr holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and government from Oberlin College and a master’s degree in economics from the New School for Social Research.

The Environmental Justice Practitioners Network (EJPN) is a joint program initiative of the Unitarian Universalist Association's Green Sanctuary Program and the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth. Find out more on the EJPN webpage.
