The People of Ukraine are in our Prayers

“We are resolute that a democratic, prosperous, and secure Ukraine is in the interest not only of the people of Ukraine but also of the United States and the international community.”
Antony J. Blinken, Secretary of State

The United States reaffirms its unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders, extending to its territorial waters. The U.S.- Ukraine relationship is a cornerstone for security, democracy, and human rights in Ukraine and the broader region.

As a non-political, non-partisan, volunteer advocacy organization, the ECCL joins many countries and groups in expressing its condemnation of the unprovoked attack on the sovereign nation of Ukraine.

The impact on the lives of innocent men, women, and children is shocking and unforgivable. Please pray for those in need and support those suffering in Ukraine in any way you can.

 

Water Pollution

Water is essential to life, and in Florida, it is also an economic engine that fuels $94 billion in annual tourism spending and $12 billion in local and state sales, hotel, and excise taxes, according to Rockport Analytics LLC. When our waterways suffer, our economy suffers, too.
