Mercy & Justice Book Study: How We Go Home

November 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Tuesdays, November 9, 16, 23, 30; 6:30 – 8:00 pm

How We Go Home: Voices from Indigenous North America shares contemporary first-person stories in the long and ongoing fight to protect Native land, rights, and life. Hear from Jasilyn Charger, one of the first five people to set up camp at Standing Rock, which kickstarted a movement of Water Protectors that roused the world; Gladys Radek, a survivor of sexual violence whose niece disappeared along Canada’s Highway of Tears, who became a family advocate for the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls; and ten others. In myriad ways, each narrator’s life has been shaped by loss, injustice, and resilience—and by the struggle of how to share space with settler nations whose essential aim is to take all that is Indigenous.

Zoom invitation will be sent with registration. Contact Pastor Cathy at cathy@fumcaustin.org for additional information. We encourage you to purchase the book locally at Black Pearl Books or Book People.
