Baltimore Yearly Meeting

The Unity with Nature committee of Baltimore Yearly Meeting (BYM) works into the beliefs and practices of Yearly Meeting the twin principles that God’s Creation is to be respected, protected, and held in reverence, and that human aspirations for peace and justice depend upon restoring the Earth’s ecological integrity. The committee promotes these principles by example, by communication, and providing spiritual and material support to those engaged in transforming our relationship with the earth. Our efforts are reflected on the website.
