FCNL’s Visiting Friends Program

Dear Friends,
We have a guest, Nancy Corindia, attending Meeting for worship tomorrow. She will stay and share our First Day potluck and speak of her experiences.

Greetings Friends,Logo_for_FCNL

My name is Nancy Corindia and I am a member of Sarasota Monthly Meeting in Florida. (Formerly, a member of Hanover Monthly Meeting.) I have been active with the Friends Committee on National Legislation community for several years and am now one of Southeastern Yearly Meeting’s representatives to the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL). Recently, I became a part of FCNL’s Visiting Friends Program to travel to Meetings to share my leadings on faith and Quaker advocacy with FCNL.

I’ll be coming to worship with Friends in Putney tomorrow and would welcome the opportunity to speak from my experience. I would speak for about 20 minutes and ask Friends for questions. It will be a pleasure to worship with you, share a meal at your potluck, and speak to Friends about my spiritual journey toward work with the Friends Committee for National Legislation.

In Peace and Light,
Nancy Corindia

Addressing Mass Incarceration

Dear Friends,unnamed-2

I’ve heard from many of you that mass incarceration is a deep concern for your meetings, so I’d like to invite you and your meetings to our national video conference call tomorrow, Tuesday.

Want to know more about federal laws concerning mass incarceration and racial justice? Friends Committee on National Legislation is hosting a nationwide video call this Tuesday, April 21 at 8 pm EST. Join Diane Randall and Tila Neguse to hear an update on what Congress could do this year to address mass incarceration, and how Friends can be involved.

To RSVP to the call and get details, email christine@fcnl.org.

Thank you, and I hope you can join us.

Sincerely,

Shannon Palmer
