Kathy Vanden Boogaard, Northern Michigan
We will be sharing information about the UTO grant initiative written and being implemented in partnership with the Great Lakes Peace Center called Walking Together: Finding Common Ground Through Racial Reconciliation. This is a project that focuses on discussions of our Church history, Listening and Learning sessions with Native American community members, and building positive relationships with our indigenous communities, including developing a traveling exhibit that tells the truth about our Church and dream for a Beloved Community. We will also be sharing a variety of resources that are being utilized to help us build bridges with our Native American neighbors on and off reservations throughout the Upper Peninsula.
