In spring 2013, grants of $500–$1,000 were made available to Unitarian Universalist congregations, groups, and organizations to be used for projects that teach about, repudiate, and mitigate the current-day effects of the Doctrine of Discovery.
The goal of these seed grants is to move our association forward in acting upon the 2012 General Assembly resolution to repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery, work with partners to mitigate the legal, cultural, environmental, and economic effects of colonization, and embrace and advocate for the full implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.
The selection committee was impressed by the variety and depth of the proposals received, and believe it is an indication that congregations are taking seriously the commitment made in the General Assembly resolution.
Seed grants were awarded to the following congregations for their projects:
These grants were made possible through a generous donor. You too can make a donation to help sustain this important ministry!
You can also learn more about how your congregation or group can study, discuss, and take action on the Doctrine of Discovery resolution.
