Let your life speak

In Quaker faith and practice, living is more important than doctrine. What we say and do reveals what we have come to un­derstand through living, through listening, and through making mistakes and reflecting on them.

This issue of Quaker Action includes many stories of people who act from the same principles that animate Quaker faith—people moved to heal wounded communities and create peace by living in a way that prefigures a peaceful world.

Who we are

AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
