our mission

In solidarity with Indigenous-led partners, we engage Anabaptists and people of faith in healing harms caused by the Doctrine of Discovery and related supremacist systems and structures.

Join the movement

The Coalition to Dismantle the Doctrine of Discovery is a group of Anabaptists who work together to mobilize church communities to dismantle the Doctrine of Discovery. We proclaim an Anabaptist spirit of discipleship rooted in the call to love of neighbor, seeking right relationship and reconciliation through active non-violence.
