Foundation for a Path Forward interviewed CFSC’s Jenn Preston about Quakerism and her work with Canadian Friends Service Committee. The discussion focused in particular around partnership with Indigenous peoples. Jenn explains what sometimes over-used words like “reconciliation” and “decolonization” mean practically speaking. She outlines how everyday non-Indigenous people in Canada can get started on the work of reconciliation and relationship building. The conversation also touches on land theft, Indigenous peoples’ human rights, residential schools, and other grave injustices and the resulting mistrust and intergenerational trauma.
Foundation for a Path Forward is focused on combatting racism in Canada. Their podcasts interview inspirational community advocates, politicians, thinkers, and leaders. Topics include anti-racism, culture, faith, refugees, environmentalism, mental health, and community.
