  • Add Your Name - Christmas Truce in Ukraine!

    SIGN ON STATEMENT: As people of faith and conscience, believing in the sanctity of all life on this planet, we call for a Christmas Truce in Ukraine. In the spirit of the truce that occurred in 1914 during the First World War, we urge our government to take a leadership role in bringing the war in Ukraine to an end through supporting calls for a ceasefire and negotiated settlement, before the conflict results in a nuclear war that could devastate the world’s ecosystems and annihilate all of God’s creation.

  • Rectifying Harm

    November is Native American Heritage Month. It is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures of Native people. It is also a time to rectify harm and to advocate for equity. From 1778 to 1871, the United States government entered into more than 500 treaties with sovereign tribes; these treaties have been violated or broken by the US government. Native Americans and First Nations Peoples still fight for their treaty rights in federal courts and in the UN. Current court cases include: U.S. Supreme Court expands state power over Native American tribes. Article from Reuters. There are challenges to the 43 year-old Indian Child Welfare Act. Article from Native American Rights Fund Check out the International Indigenous Peoples’ Forum on Climate Change. And a statement of reconciliation from member group Madison Friends Meeting (Quakers).
