Educating for Change – Transforming Indigenous & Non-Indigenous Relations has been selected as this year’s first Northern Lights recipient.

Northern Lights is a program where Unitarians from across the country sign up to support a selected project once or twice a year (more information at cuc.ca/northern-lights). Current donors from across the country will soon be notified of this year’s selection, and asked to send in their donations, which will be added to the amount already raised by Educating for Change.
