QEW Online Discussions

Published: July 29, 2019

Quaker Earthcare Witness has hosted an email discussion list for some years. During a recent server upgrade the list was deleted. We have a new list, but without contacts. 

This is a request to past participants to rejoin, and an opportunity to those of you who might not have known about it to join it.

This link will take you to the signup form, where you can add yourself to the list with your preferred email address.

Once you have joined the list, you'll be able to post immediately, though you might want to wait a day until everyone else previously on the list has had a chance to rejoin as well.

QEW maintains this list to promote discussions and provide shared resources for Friends interested in earthcare. Members of the QEW discussion list should be connected in some way to a Quaker meeting or church, and they should be willing to follow these guidelines:

  1. Messages should be worded respectfully, in a way that you would speak to someone in a Quaker committee meeting or discussion group
  2. Messages should relate to earthcare or linked topics such as ecological integrity, environmental justice, population, and indigenous concerns.
  3. Messages should include a clear and informational subject line
  4. Individuals that send messages that are too far off topic or abrasive will be asked not to do so by the moderators (Shelley Tanenbaum, Hayley Hathaway, Alan Dixon). If such messages continue, the individual will be dropped from the list-serve.

Thank you.
