If you’re working on decolonization, truth-telling, and reconciliation in your community or congregation, you’re invited to a time of online conversation, support, and planning. People who are Witnesses within the Being Good Relations Network are of course also welcome. People of all backgrounds welcome; we expect to focus somewhat on the United Church community and our responsibilities within our Apology, UNDRIP, and the TRC Calls to Action.
