The Franciscan Action Network highlighted in their newsletter the reintroduction of Truth and Healing Commission on Indian Boarding School Policies in the United States by Congressional Native American Caucus.This legislation, presented in both the Senate and the House, aims to establish a commission dedicated to investigating, documenting and acknowledging past injustices resulting from federal Indian boarding school policies. 
Emphasizing the imperative of acknowledging tribal nations as the original inhabitants of the land, the Franciscan Action Network stresses the significance of passing the Truth and Healing Commission as a crucial step toward initiating the healing process. With the legislation's advancement through Congress, it is important to continue advocating and using our voices.
