Team (or subcommittee) meetings are small, focused, and held as needed, depending on the coalition’s priorities. Teams are authorized by and report back to the steering committee. As we are powered by volunteers, we enthusiastically welcome participation from all coalition members. If you’d like to get involved or form a new team, please get in touch.

Deep Green Faith & Practice Team

Robert Desmarais Sullivan, Chair

This team seeks to foster a deeper alignment between our physical actions, which affect the natural world, and our deeply-held values, respecting the sacredness of the world. We’ll aim to address topics that range from the energy efficiency of our houses of worship to the food that we serve.

Legislative/Policy Team

We work to keep the GNOICC informed of local, state and federal environmental policy issues, changes and proposals.

Father Jay Angerer, Chair

Mission & Affiliation Team

Kristina Peterson, Chair

This team explores potential affiliations — linking with other groups both in concert with our ideals and maybe just on a similar task, including service-learning partnerships with educational institutions. We establish organizational goals in line with our mission through an inclusive visioning process. We also review our mission from time to time. The Communications Team currently meets with this team.
