We as members of Putney Friends Meeting (Quakers) share the
goals of many others for social justice. We affirm any work that
addresses equity and inclusion for refugees, asylum seekers,
immigrants, people of color, and other marginalized groups.
Our faith community extends a welcome to all those who embark on a
dangerous journey to come to this country to escape violence and
dire poverty, to make a better life for themselves and their families.
Likewise, we offer that same welcome to those who come to our
town’s border with the desire to lead dignified, productive lives.
We also call on other individuals, groups, and faith communities to
stand with us in making similar public statements of support.
