Divest Waterloo is partnering with The Centre for Public Ethics at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, Interfaith Grand River, Faith & the Common Good, Sacred Water Circle, and the Green Awakening Network to bring you an opportunity to learn together and engage in Climate Justice and Right Relations.

This forum will bring together a group of exceptional speakers and a wonderful diversity of people and faith traditions in a safe and encouraging environment for challenging and honest conversations. Using each other’s knowledge and experience to envision a way forward, we will leave with action plans and relationships to further the most important work we face as a nation: Reconciliation with each other and with Mother Earth.

Panels will address allyship, the interfaith response and climate justice. Panelists include: John Dillon • Interfaith Grand River • Leah Gazan • Lindsay Gray • Melissa Ireland • Sheri Longboat • John Milloy • Dorothy Taylor • Mardi Tindal
