FGC addresses racism

Friends General Conference wants to help your Quaker meeting challenge racism and build beloved community through two worthwhile opportunities:

Last November, we first reported that Central Committee (the governing body) united around the need to undertake an Institutional Assessment to uncover structural racism within our organization – and to prepare plans for dismantling such structures. FGC has created a page on its website with details regarding the assessment, and a link for Friends to help support this work. Learn more about FGC’s Institutional Assessment.

The White Privilege Conference (WPC) strives to empower and equip individuals to work for equity and justice through self and social transformation. Since 2011, FGC has sponsored a group discount for Friends attending the White Privilege Conference. At least 40 Quakers have attended each year, and in 2016 more than 400 Friends attended with the FGC discount. Pre-register to attend WPC18 with FGC Friends on our website.
