The Doctrine of Discovery is a barbaric 15th century papal edict that is used even today to "disenfranchise, displace and ultimately devastate Indigenous peoples around the world."
The Romero Institute (with attorney Daniel Sheehan, President and Legal Counsel, at the helm) is petitioning Pope Francis to revoke the Doctrine of Discovery.
Please sign and circulate the petition to Pope Francis.

Sample Letters: Divestment & Other

Subject: Divestment and other letters

Hello to all,
I am attaching copies of four letters I am sending off to Citibank, Costco Corporation, Wells Fargo Corporation, and Congressional Representative Jared Huffman. The first three relate to urging these financial organizations to divest from dirty fossil fuel companies, and the last asks Rep Huffman to follow up on his earlier actions to influence Washington to pay attention to the ongoing issues at Standing Rock.
I want to acknowledge the “ghost writer” who posted an earlier letter in an email, and whose elegant and pointed language I borrowed from. I couldn’t find the author of that earlier letter, and hope I can safely assume it was OK to use some of his/her phrasing as I invite anyone else to use anything you see in any of these letters. Feel free to pass them on to anyone interested.
