Green Organizing Action Team (GOAT)

The Green Organizing and Action Team (GOAT) is an ad hoc committee, approved by the Meeting, to engage members of the Homewood Friends community, individually and collectively, in efforts to save energy, live sustainably, and respond to the challenges of climate change.

Homewood Meeting has embraced the “Shared Quaker Statement: Facing the Challenge of Climate Change.” GOAT helps the community to transform the elements of that statement into personal, local, and regional action. Anyone interested in participating in GOAT is encouraged to contact the Homewood Meeting office.
