QUUAM members are animal lovers who want to deepen their understanding of other species and their environments as well as advocate for the health, well being of all sentient creatures. QUUAM is a group that takes up social justice issues for all species as well as supports each other in our efforts and relationship to the greater-than-human world.
QUUAM members provide a service to QUUF congregation in education and raising awareness about all species and the environment, thereby helping to change the social and world dynamics of human relationships that are helping or harming our planet. We deepen our relationships with each other in this action group as well as by working with other QUUF members and friends, and the greater community.
The main skill needed is the love of other species and each other. In our Action Group Covenant we emphasize openness and loving communication - “We believe the shifting paradigm from human dominance to a reverence for all life is key to healing the world. Growing our skills and capacity for compassionate communication, we will act in ways that nourish one another and support our multi-species communities.” Other skills are WELCOMED and appreciated and can be utilized - we are a new and growing group needing the multi-skilled diversity of many members.
No known training or requirements. We ask members agree with the QUUAM Covenant. If one goes on a field trip or volunteers as part of this group, the obvious “at your own risk” is always in place.
