EcoFaith Recovery seeks to deepen education and understanding of the ways in which we continue to shadow our history of harm and genocide. There are many ways that you and your community can engage and more deeply understand the land on which you live as well as the first peoples who lived on these lands, the displacements and traumas colonial powers inflicted upon them, and the living members of these communities who still live on these lands today. In seeking to engage in themes of relationship and repair, EcoFaith Recovery has many options of ways we can engage and educate our communities over the year to come.
Here we hope to engage communities in relationship and repair with indigenous communities in Northwest Oregon. Below you will find many opportunities to engage with these themes if you are interested in one or many of these opportunities please fill out the form below or email email@example.com for more information.
