Take action. The United Church has a long history of working on issues of Indigenous Justice. We do this through our own Living Into Right Relations network, in partnership with KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives and through national initiatives such as the ongoing call for an inquiry into murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls.
