Minutes Details: 

The Autumn 2020 Interim Session of NYM renounces the Doctrine of Discovery. We form a subcommittee of the Worshipful, Spirit-led Anti-Racism Working Group (ARWG) charged with cultivating awareness and relationships with our local indigenous communities through compiling resources and providing guidance to help the Monthly Meetings, Worship Groups and individuals grow in their understanding and ability to take action relative to the Doctrine of Discovery. In addition, this subcommittee would oversee the process of bringing the Doctrine of Discovery to the full body for consideration at the 2021 Annual Session for possible renunciation.
