Quakers Changing Government

Published: Oct. 9, 2020


Hello Friends,

I’m writing to share news of an exciting virtual event from FCNL in October:

Quakers Changing Government: Past, Present, and Future
Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. EDT
Click here to register for this online event.

Where does Quakers’ call to lobby for peace and justice come from?
What do those origins have to say to Friends carrying their concerns into the world today?

The Quaker writer and speaker Marge Abbott considers these questions through the lenses of history of the Religious Society of Friends and the biblical sources that early Friends relied on. In conversation with Katie Breslin, Marge will discuss Friends’ historically complex relationship with law and government and what that history offers to Friends wrestling with these same questions today.

Katie Breslin is the former Young Adult Program Manager for the Friends Committee on National Legislation, a current member of the General Committee, and a seminarian studying Quaker ministry at Earlham School of Religion.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me, Bobby Trice (rtrice-AT-fcnl-DOT-org).

from Bobby Trice, Friends Committee on National Legislation (10/7/2020)
