Through the leadership of Indigenous people, so many of us have come into an understanding of the violent history of Thanksgiving and have changed our relationship to the holiday. In that spirit, join SURJ, other movement organizations, and Indigenous leaders to deepen your commitment to and understanding of present-day Indigenous struggles this Sunday, November 19 at 4:30 ET for the conversation: “Healing this Broken Land: Indigenous Leadership in the Face of Climate Crisis.”
This year, the annual “rethinking Thanksgiving” webinar will focus on the role of Indigenous leadership and Indigenous sovereignty in our collective fight against climate catastrophe. We’ll hear from Indigenous climate justice leaders about their communities fighting at the heart of the issue, and how the Doctrine of Discovery and legacy of colonization fuels the current climate crisis.
Webinar sponsored by Tonatierra, American Indian Law Alliance, Eastern Woodlands Rematriation, Honor the Earth, Hawaii Peace and Justice Center, Indigenous Solidarity Network, Catalyst Project, Showing Up for Racial Justice, Nuns & Nones Land Justice, and 350.org.
