Truth and Reconciliation Committee

The  Truth and Reconciliation Committee (Mylène, Penni and Marilyn)

Quakers across Canada were challenged by Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC) to take action for “a paradigm shift, moving from colonialism to a new reality based on respect for Indigenous Peoples’ Human Rights.”

They guide us specifically to
  • Educate Meeting members and attenders
  • Acknowledge traditional territories
  • Support local Indigenous communities
  • Support spiritually the Friends working on this issue
  • Report to CFSC annually

We read and watched and shared educational resources.

    Thank you Friends. I look forward to reading your shared material and to be infected with inspiration to do likewise.
