#MCCpeace: Engage with U.S. justice issues

  • Why does the U.S. have 5% of the world’s population but nearly 25% of its prisoners?*
  • Did you know that the Doctrine of Discovery, which legalized the theft of land, labor and resources from Indigenous Peoples, originated with the Christian church?

Engage with MCC’s work in mass incarceration and with the Doctrine of Discovery by signing up for one of two free simulations, “You Got Booked” or “Loss of Turtle Island.” 

Both simulations begin at 6:30 p.m. and require pre-registration with free dinner included at 6:00 p.m. Spots are limited, so sign up now!
