Climate Justice & Indigenous Allyship
What Does It Mean? How Do We Get There?
Saturday, June 11th, 2016, 10 am - 4 pm
Board and Senate Chambers at Wilfrid Laurier University
75 University Avenue West, Waterloo

As faith communities, we can not ignore the horrific wrongs visited on Indigenous peoples by religious entities. We talk about Truth and Reconciliation and reparation and yet, what are we doing to right these wrongs?

At Faith & the Common Good, we see climate protection as an opportunity to learn from and work as allies with Indigenous communities. That's why we are overjoyed to be partnering with Indigenous and faith community groups to offer the Climate Justice & Indigenous Allyship Forum, this June 11th.

Indigenous communities across the country are on the leading edge of climate action — from preventing environmentally harmful pipe lines to be built, to protecting water and land.

Join us on June 11th to explore what allyship looks like and how to get there, so that we can be supportive partners in bettering our world, and this time get it right: leaving a shared legacy that we can all be proud of.
