We invite you to a day of learning about the historic and ongoing impacts of the Doctrine of Discovery. 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.”
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 those seeds to bring forth the fruits of right relationship with all peoples?
This workshop is open to all people, high school age or older. There is no fee to attend the program but pre-registration is required as space is limited.
Participants will become those who will lead trainings in various congregations throughout the Diocese. The training will be open to a maximum of 10 people deeply committed to an extended process as we move the congregations in the Episcopal Diocese of Iowa to begin dismantling racism. Those interested in participating in this track must complete an application and commit to six subsequent monthly webinars.
