May 26, 2012 is the National Day of Healing and Reconciliation. It starts a month-long journey toward the national Truth and Reconciliation Commission events in Saskatoon on June 21-24, 2012.
We're asking you, your congregation, parish, or community to join our campaign by putting yourself in the picture for Indigenous rights on this day. There are lots of ways to do this!
Be part of a massive public witness for Indigenous rights. Take a photo of you and your group holding a bold sign saying, "Truth, Reconciliation & Equity: They Matter to Us!" and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will present your photos as part of our participation in events in Saskatoon. We also display all your creative contributions on Facebook and Flickr. Deadline is June 1, 2012.
You can also celebrate your hope for an equitable Canada by focussing on Indigenous rights in your May 27 worship service. We have lots of resources that will make this easy for you! These include a bulletin insert with prayers, action items, and a brief explanation of our Indigenous rights campaign. KAIROS also has a complete Truth, Reconciliation & Equity workshop and worship service.
For more information on our Indigenous rights campaign, please contact Julie Graham, Education and Campaign Program Coordinator, email@example.com.
