Program Discussions

Social Justice Service

Putney Friends has three active groups under our Social Justice Service Committee. They are focused on immigration issues, specifically supporting people who are in the process of seeking asylum; racism with a focus on understanding our own racism; and outreach in the form of serving meals at the local shelter. Representatives of these groups are looking forward to sharing with Friends and learning about similar work within other Northwest Quarter meetings.

 

FCNL Advocacy Workshop

The Orchard Hill Worship Group, in collaboration with Putney Friends Meeting, will be hosting an FCNL advocacy workshop on March 30th at the Orchard School and Community Center. Each year, in addition to their on-going work, FCNL takes up specific campaigns that they believe they can achieve movement on. This year, FCNL is working on a campaign to repeal the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force (AUMF) and will be providing advocacy training in the manner of Friends. We look forward to discussing this work, welcoming Friends who would like to participate, and learning of existing chapters or like initiatives in our Quarter.

 

Reflections from a new worship group

Friends from the newly formed Orchard Hill Worship Group in East Alstead, NH will speak on their formative experience. Where did this leading come from? Who are we? What lights us up?

We look forward to introducing ourselves and extending our warm greetings to our Quarter.
