Eco-Justice is Anti-Colonial
March 25, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join NCIPL & NC Council of Churches Intern for Climate and Environmental Justice, Noely Bernier, for a discussion on the impacts of colonialism (on our lives and the environmental movement), the importance of decolonization to the work of social and ecological justice, and ways to embody decolonization as activists and people of faith. Noely will provide a brief history of colonialism as a foundation to our discussion, tell her own story related to this work, and walk participants through various ways that the colonial narrative has shaped land, relationships, activism, and discourse. NCIPL & Eco-Justice Connection Program Coordinator, Sarah Ogletree, will also provide resources during the call to aid faith communities in considering a decolonized framework in their ministries. Considering the impacts of colonialism is vital to the work of anti-racism and to understanding the interconnections of climate justice and racial justice.
This presentation is the culmination of several months of work during Noely’s internship, and is an incredible resource for faith communities committed to furthering their commitments to justice. Please join us for this deeply important and honest conversation that is central to living out our callings of love!
Special thanks to Guilford College, Quaker Earthcare Witness, and New Garden Friends Meeting in Greensboro who dreamed with us about this internship and made this opportunity possible.
