Recently the federal government endorsed the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous peoples, an important first step in building a new relationship with indigenous peoples based on mutuality and respect.
On June 20, in Ottawa, KAIROS will be creating an enormous banner marking the support of churches and communities across Canada for the Declaration and its full implementation.
KAIROS is an ecumenical organization which works for peace, justice and environmental issues in Canada and internationally. The congregation of Knox United Church here in Terrace is supporting the June 20th action, and has created this banner which will be joined with others made by church groups all across the country. A full day of activities, including a display of the banner, is planned for Parliament Hill.
