Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change

  • Old Brick 26 E Market St Iowa City, IA 52245 (map)

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.
