United Church adopts reconciliation path: UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

You are invited to be part of an important moment in the church’s journey of reconciliation.

On March 30 and 31, 2016, The United Church of Canada will participate in events marking our commitment—as a denomination and as part of the ecumenical community—to adopt the principles, norms, and standards of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as the framework for reconciliation.

We do this in response to Call to Action #48 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.  And we invite all United Church people to be a part of this important moment in the church’s journey.
