Next Steps In Truth, Healing and Reconciliation

Next Steps In Truth, Healing and Reconciliation Dates / Times 2018-11-13 to 2018-11-27 (19:00 to 21:00) Organization Calgary Unitarians Type Recurring Community 1703-1st Street NWCalgary, ABT2M 4P4 587.352.1675 Next Steps In Truth, Healing and Reconciliation Calgary Unitarians, a liberal faith community, will be hosting a truth and reconciliation exercise during November, and are inviting others to join us in this next step on our path to truth and reconciliation. On three consecutive Tuesday nights we will be streaming the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network's (APTN) mini-series, First Contact. This production challenges non-Indigenous Canadians to recognize and confront their own prejudices and stereotypes toward Canada's First Nations. Each showing will be followed by a discussion. The Aboriginal Peoples Television Network describes the production this way: Most Canadians have never taken the time to get to know Indigenous People or visit their communities. First Contact takes six average Canadians, all with strong opinions about Indigenous People, on a unique 28-day journey into Indigenous Canada. Leaving their everyday lives behind the six will travel deep into Winnipeg, Nunavut, Alberta, Northern Ontario, and the coast of BC to visit Indigenous communities. Narrated by host and social justice activist George Stroumboulopoulos, First Contact is a journey that will turn the six participants' lives upside down. Challenging their perceptions and confronting their opinions about a world they never imagined they would see. It is an experience that will change their lives, forever. (www.aptn.ca/firstcontact/) Come and join us on November 13, 20 and 27th, from 7 pm to approximately 9 pm, for the one-hour video presentation, followed by light refreshments and conversation on this important issue. The Calgary Unitarians are located at 1703 1st Street NW, Calgary, Alberta. There is a Calgary Transit bus stop just one block away, at Centre Street and 16th Avenue NW.
