Politics is Quakerly


Dear Editor: I was led to send this message below to you because I wanted to reach out to Friends who are thinking it is "Not Quakerly" to get involved in politics. I believe that too many Friends are sitting on the sidelines (probably with signs) while their local community is looking for people to come and help them improve the lives of its residents. I want Friends to find and help to support candidates and even political parties that may be to their liking.

Choose Democracy


Dear Friends:

Please circulate this message from George Lakey:

"Democracy is fragile. We have reason to worry that this fall we may see an undemocratic power grab — a coup. We also know that the people can defend our democracy. Mass protests have stopped coups in other places, and we may have to do the same in this country.

"That’s why we are committing now to choose democracy: by voting, making sure all the votes are counted, and preparing to take the streets in the case of a coup.
