What is “FaCT?”
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. We are part of a larger group, FaCT, “Faith Communities Together for Frack Awareness.” FaCT’s participants come from more than 40 faith communities in Ohio, from 16 Ohio counties (and three in West Virginia), and includes Catholics, Protestants, Jews and people from more than ten faith traditions. We’re working together to protect God’s Creation.
Come and join us in confronting–from a faith perspective–the problems that resource extraction, especially fracking, have been causing for communities and families in rural, suburban, and urban areas.
