Quaker action for a just world: A conversation between Friends and AFSC
The American Friends Service Committee is working to create, strengthen and nurture our relationships with Monthly and Yearly Meetings and Churches. In our work through Quaker engagement, we hope to connect with Friends intentionally and share opportunities to engage with our work to build peace around the globe.
AFSC's Director of Quaker Engagement, Brian Blackmore, is traveling throughout the U.S. South and Midwest to engage with Quaker Meetings and share the work carried out through AFSC's programs across the world.
