Beyond Word and Gesture
September 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The discovery of children’s graves on the grounds of a Residential school in Kamloops last summer, motivated many settler Canadians to learn more about Canada’s relationship with Indigenous nations. Since then, we have worked to learn the Truth about the anguish our government’s actions have created and the many promises made and broken.
Learning the Truth leads us to question how we might Reconcile.
In 2021, a group of leaders – Indigenous and Settler – acting on their commitment to create a more respectful and just relationship, came together to answer that question. They created the Citizens Group for the 1% Indigenous Peoples Fund and have created a proposal that would serve to help Settlers and Indigenous people move into a more just and equitable relationship in a very concrete way – a way beyond words and gestures.
Royal York Road United Church will honour the second National Day of Truth and Reconciliation with a workshop on their proposal.
Please join us for an online session with one of the members of the Citizens Group, Harry Oussoren. Harry will present us with their very intriguing solution and lead us in discussion.
