Vanessa Julye comes to us from Friends General Conferenc. Her talk is entitled:

Continuing Revelation is calling for
Transformation in the Religious Society of Friends

Transformation in the Religious Society of Friends depends on a shift in our narrative. We should understand and acknowledge our collective past, so we can move forward with healing the harm our White Supremist structure has caused. What collective change is necessary to activate the structural transformation necessary for an equitable Religious Society of Friends?

We start the evening with a potluck dinner out in the back yard (social distanced chairs) weather permitting.
