The Pilgrimage for Indigenous Rights is a response to Jesus call to walk alongside and stand with the marginalized and oppressed in society. In addition, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has called churches to engage in public dialogue around the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We’re responding by doing a 3 week pilgrimage from Kitchener to Ottawa, stopping at 21 churches along the way to explore what the Declaration is, why it’s so important, and how we can collectively live into it.
