Who Are We?

The Truth and Reconciliation Committee (currently made up of Marilyn, Mylène, and Penni) works to take action for “a paradigm shift, moving from colonialism to a new reality based on respect for Indigenous Peoples’ Human Rights.”

We do this work in Mi’kma’ki, the traditional territory and never-ceded homeland of the Mi’kmaw People (also called L’nu).

What Do We Do?

Our founding principles come from Canadian Yearly Meeting and Canadian Friends Service Committee (CFSC). 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 publish a short newsletter, “Learn and Act“, 4 times per year.  Each issue includes one learning resource and one local action readers can take.

We look forward to working with other individuals and organizations that share our purpose.  If you would like to learn more, receive our newsletter, or share your knowledge, please , or contact Annapolis Valley Monthly Meeting.
