Join us at the Philanthropiece Barn for this interactive workshop on February 13th, 2018 from 6pm-8:00pm! This is a FREE event open to everyone meant to educate our community about our nation’s relationship with Native Peoples.
The Toward Right Relationship project offers this workshop in response to calls from Indigenous leaders at the United Nations and the World Council of Churches. The 2-hour exercise traces the historic and ongoing impacts of the Doctrine of Discovery, the 15th-century justification for European subjugation of non-Christian peoples. Our goal is to raise our level of knowledge and concern about these impacts, recognize them in ourselves and our institutions, and explore how we can begin to take actions toward “right relationship.” We provide a Resource Kit with suggestions for continued study, reflection, and action.
In the Doctrine of Discovery, we find the roots of injustice. In the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, we find the seeds of change. How can we nurture these seeds to bring forth the fruits of right relationship among all peoples?
Please take the time to fill out the RSVP form under the tickets section so we can prepare for the most accurate number of guests. We’re looking forward to learning and growing together!
**The event is FREE, but we suggest donations to the Towards Right Relationship Project to continue this work.
