Update on FGC’s Institutional Assessment on Racism Oct 2018

Lake Erie Yearly Meeting strongly supports FGC’s Institutional Assessment on Racism with both donations and participation. The Assessment is looking at where FGC Friends currently stand in being complicit with the institutionalized racism that permeates North American culture and how Quakers can move toward being anti-racist in our culture and institutions.

Three Lake Erie Yearly Meeting Friends serve on the Institutional Assessment Task Force: Marvin Barnes (Birmingham Meeting), Carolyn Lejuste (Red Cedar), and Dwight Wilson (Ann Arbor). The Task Force has just provided an update on the progress of their work as they prepare to bring recommendations for change to FGC’s governing body, Central Committee, later in October.
