12:30 pm - January 6th -  Speakers’ Series


Almost two years ago, Toronto Star columnist Vicky Mochama called the treatment of women – and especially Indigenous women – in Canadian prisons “a human rights travesty.” She noted that women prisoners are routinely denied the basic human dignity, medical treatment, training opportunities and culturally appropriate spiritual support necessary to equip them for life beyond incarceration.

SPEAKER: Rev. Teresa Burnett Cole,

the Coordinating Minister at Glebe St. James Church

TOPIC: “Indigenous Women & Canada’s Prison System.”

Teresa earned a Bachelor of Arts (Canadian History and Religious Studies) degree from King’s University College at the University of Western Ontario, and a Master of Divinity degree from Emmanuel College, Toronto where she was the Sanford Fleming Gold Medalist. She is currently completing her Th.D. in liturgical studies at the Toronto School of Theology, University of Toronto. Teresa has served congregations in the Maritimes, Saskatchewan, Toronto, and now Montreal and Ottawa Conferences. Teresa is an accomplished visual artist and musician.

Glebe St. James reaches out to the wider community through a number of initiatives, including direct involvement with Canada’s Indigenous Peoples. Teresa’s work in this area includes a study of the over-representation of Indigenous women in Canada’s prison system: how these women arrive in prison, what incarceration means for them and their families, and what can be done to help them heal.

Club Business Meeting follows the speaker.
