COVID-19: Resources for Friends and Meetings

Although many of our local meetings are practicing Social Distancing, there are still many opportunities to practice our faith through worship, community building, and service. Please visit our COVID-19: Resources Friends and meetings for more information.


Local Meetings Respond — Mondays at 7 p.m.

Topic for 06/01/2020: Stories of Witness - facilitated by Cai Quirk and Rebekah Rice, co-clerks of Witness Coordinating Committee

How can Quakers engage with witness and justice work when we can't go out into the world? In times of crisis, we often gather—in support, in protest, in solidarity—yet in this time where forced distance meets intensified inequity, many meetings are finding unique ways to respond. Join us this Monday to hear about meetings getting food to marginalized communities, making masks to fundraise for Quaker organizations supporting marginalized communities around the world, and more!
