"The majority of women in the United States were raised in Christian homes, or as adults have affiliated themselves with a Christian church. This is a sociological reality. Therefore, when a woman is battered by a member of her family, she will likely bring to that experience her background and values as a Christian woman. Also likely is that her experience of violence in her family will be not only a physical and emotional crisis but also a spiritual crisis" -- Preface, p. 2.

Prologue
Since the termination of Project North in 1987, further evaluation and consultation between the churches in Canada has led to a new coalition on aboriginal justice concerns. This is the result of discussion between the churches, network groups, and native organizations. It shifts the focus of the former Project North to include justice issues for native people all over Canada and is based upon the church leaders' recent statement: "A New Covenant".
Text
That this National Executive Council support and participate fully in the new coalition: Project North - Ecumenical Coalition for Aboriginal Justice; and request the Program Committee to appoint two representatives from the Anglican Church of Canada to its Steering Committee. CARRIED #54-11-88
