Current Events & Actions

  • Quaker Call to Action
    A group of Friends across the United States have initiated a project growing out of their concern for threats to our democracy.  At the core of this project is the “Quaker Call to Action”, a document that individuals and organizations are invited to read and, if they feel so led, to sign.
    Peace and Social Order committee, encourages Monthly Meetings to take the following actions:
    1. Take this document up at a meeting for worship on the occasion of business and consider endorsing it as a Meeting.
    2. Circulate the document among members and attenders for the benefit of any who might like to endorse it as individuals.
    Endorsements can be submitted here: https://quakercall.net/endorse-the-call
