Truth & Reconciliation

Breslau Mennonite Church Truth & Reconciliation Working Group – Purpose

How can I contribute to the process of truth and reconciliation with Indigenous People in Canada?  What do I need to learn? What do I need to do?  These are the kinds of questions a lot of us at BMC are asking, and the answers are not always clear.

Living Into Right Relations is a newsletter that connects you to a lot of things that are happening with Indigenous people in this area.  Have a look.
