Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge we are on the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples. During our region’s rich indigenous history, these lands have been home to the Chonnonton peoples, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Métis. We express gratitude for the sharing of these lands. We also acknowledge the tragic history between first peoples and newcomers. We strive to be accountable by acknowledging this history and cultivating respect in our relationships with indigenous peoples and the land.

    Anti-Racism Work as Spiritual Practice
  • Away Service
  • Today, we join the Reverend Jess at the Grand River Unitarian Congregation, in Kitchener where Donovan Hayden will speak on Anti-Racism Work as Spiritual Practice.  Summer 2020 has been described as a moment of racial reckoning. Black people, along with allies, took to the streets to protest police brutality and anti-Black racism. However, with those months of intense activism behind us, those committed to social justice must ask "What do we do now?". It is easy to lose energy and purpose in the struggle against white supremacy. As Unitarians, committed to this struggle, it is important that we continue to engage and support anti-racism work through spiritual practice. 

    Donovan Hayden is a Black activist and artist. He is currently a MA student in Theatre & Performance Studies at York University in Toronto.  He spent the last year in Pittsburgh, PA, where he participated in the Black Lives Matter protests after the killing of George Floyd. Through his experiences, Donovan has had the opportunity to engage with Unitarians and anti-racism work on both sides of the border. He remains committed to using theatre and activism to achieve black liberation and dismantle white supremacy.
