Andrew Epps will be giving a talk about climate justice on September 11 at 6:00pm at the
Black River Falls United Methodist Church, 100 N 4 th Street, Black River Falls. He is the
son of Tom and Lois Epps and was born and raised in Black River Falls. He currently works in
Chicago at Sweet Water Foundation, a nonprofit organization that runs a two-acre community
farm on the city’s South Side. Driven by values of regeneration and “small is beautiful,” Sweet
Water has developed an intergenerational social justice practice that creates safe and inspiring
places grounded in the local ecology. Andrew graduated this spring from Cornell University with
a degree in city planning, where he focused on urban adaptation to climate change and
community-led development. He will be talking about the uneven impacts of climate change and
how taking small actions can have big impacts that can heal ourselves and our communities.
Andy will be joining us through ZOOM technology as part of the United Women In Faith mission
outreach. Everyone is invited to attend from the church and community. You are welcome to
attend at 5:00 – 5:45pm and bring an “environmentally friendly” bag lunch to enjoy fellowship
together, followed by the presentation at 6pm in the church sanctuary. A free will offering will be
collected and given to the Sweet Water Foundation in support of their efforts.
