Mark Charles Assesses the Biden Administration from an Indigenous Christian Perspective
The environmental movement has widely lauded the actions taken by the Biden administration in addressing the climate crisis through early appointments and executive orders. Yet, there is a larger context to consider as indigenous leaders continue fights against pipelines and Syria is bombed. In this webinar, Mark Charles will provide an indigenous Christian perspective on the presidency. Charles is the co-author of the book, “Unsettling Truths: The Ongoing, Dehumanizing Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery.” In 2020, as an independent candidate, Charles made a historic run for the presidency as a dual citizen of the United States and the Navajo Nation. Register now for this webinar on Wednesday, March 11 at 1 pm ET. Even if you can’t make it, still sign-up, and you will be sent a recording afterward.
