News and an Invitation from the Undoing Racism Group


During the 2014 Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (PYM) Annual Sessions, a Friend of color (among others) observed that PYM’s diversity does not reflect the diversity of our neighborhoods, and called on PYM to address the racism that still persists in our Society. In response, a multiracial group of Friends came together at Sessions and has continued to meet since, holding honest conversations and seeking way forward for PYM and its faith communities. This Undoing Racism Group shares a collective vision and proposes actions which may work to develop the kinds of beloved faith communities we wish for our Monthly, Quarterly, and Yearly Meetings, along with other bodies under our care. The Undoing Racism Group has invites those interested to:
