First Thursday — First Steps: Sustainability for small businesses, nonprofits, and the faith community
January 5 @ 12:00 pm CST
Guest Speaker Rabbi Marc Boone Fitzerman, Rabbi of Counsel, The Synagogue Congregation B’nai Emunah
Educated in the brick-in-the-toilet-tank 1970s, Marc Fitzerman is now in his second round of sustainability activism. He led his congregation into the Scor3card program prior to COVID and has now
authored one of our new Sustainability Alliance programs, First Steps, a way of building out sustainability commitments in small businesses, not-for-profits, and the faith community.
Rabbi Fitzerman believes that the most important step in combatting environmental and social degradation is systemic reform by government and business. But he also thinks that meaningful work can be accomplished by individuals and small groups. First Steps is a way of foregrounding incremental change as a public act of accountability.
