Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change
ZCS partner Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON) is proud to present this workshop. The Toward Right Relationship project of the Boulder Friends Meeting (Quakers) developed this workshop in response to calls from Indigenous leaders 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. The goal is to raise allies 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.” A Resource Kit with suggestions for continued study, reflection, and action will be provided.
