A new resource from the Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network (CEARN) designed to help Canadians to engage with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools and to better understand the legacies of colonization that Aboriginal peoples live with today.

What can you do to support racial justice?
• Plan to give time throughout the year to engage in learning, discussion and outreach – especially with communities that experience racism.
• Find ways to journey together as you confront the reality of racism and explore how racial justice can be achieved.
• Organize activities for all ages.
• Create opportunities for worship and study.

The mandate of the Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network is to accompany Canadian churches and church organizations who are working toward racial justice, racial reconciliation, and peace to transform themselves and their communities. The CEARN Steering Committee is made up of representatives from members of the Canadian Council of Churches and sister ecumenical organizations.

For more information about CEARN or this resource please go to the Canadian Council of Churches web site at councilofchurches.ca/social-justice/undoing-racism/anti-racism-network/.
