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.
