Prioritize UN Declaration Legislation
Thanks to advocacy efforts around Bill C-262 during the last Parliament, the current government plans to introduce a legislative framework for United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UN Declaration) implementation in the second week of December. Send a message to the Minister of Justice and your Member of Parliament to ask them to act on that commitment.
Advocacy for People on the Move
One hundred years ago, MCC was formed in faith to help people in crisis and dealing with displacement. Today, we are working hard to live up to this legacy in response to COVID-19. When crises like these occur, the needs of vulnerable and displaced families become even more pronounced, whether at home or around the world.
Peacebuilding to Address Forced Migration
All over the world, people are on the move. Over 70.8 million people are currently forcibly displaced from their homes. In 2018 alone, there were 28 million new internal displacements across 148 countries and territories. Eighty percent of the world’s displaced remain in neighboring countries in the global south. They have no prospective of either going home or resettling in a third country.

But that is not the reality for Palestinians — or even for some Israelis. Israel's military occupation of the Palestinian territories makes life insecure for both peoples.
