PC Dinner and Rights of Indigenous People

From Agnes Williams, Indigeneous Women's Initiative:

IWI has initated a campaign to get the local state and national church denominations to adopt the United Nations Declaration Rights of Indigenous Peoples. 

As part of this campaign we will approach Bishop Gumbleton about the Papal Bulls, Doctrine of Discovery and reconcilliation efforts to adopt the UNDRIP within the Catholic Church. 

he Catholic Sister's of St Joseph have heard presentations and are willing to do an intervention at the UN Permament Forum regarding the DOD.

The Episcopaleans have repudiated the DOD.

The Methodists have repudiated and called upon the US Senate to adopt the UNDRIP as the law of the land.

The NY Yearly Meeting of Friends (Quakers) have repudiated the DOD.

Tthe Unitarian Universalists have also reprudiated the DOD.

The World Council Churches one one of the first to repudiate the DOD and call for the adoption of the UNDRIP.

The WNY Peace Center is an important event in Buffalo NY and IWI/IWN will have a table or two.

Please let me know if you would like to buy a ticket and sit with IWI/IWN at the Peace Center dinner to hear Catholic Bishop Gumbleton speak. Or you can just go directly to Peace Center to attend.
