Justice, Environment & the Arts events May 9-11, June 8, 2019

Kalamazoo Friends Meeting (KFM) is hosting a series of programs on Justice, Environment, & the Arts. Lake Erie Yearly Meeting Friends are invited to join us for two upcoming events with presentations and an art exhibit on May 9-11 and June 8.

The following presentations may be of special interest to Friends. Overnight hospitality is offered for them with notice. Contact meymdh at gmail.com, 313.389.6866.

* On Fri. May 10th at 7pm, Mey presents “A Quaker View on Connecting Concerns: Right Relationship, Justice, and the Environment,” where she will share from her experiences traveling in the ministry.

* On Sat. June 8th, special guest Panoka Walker – an indigenous woman and plenary presenter at the 2018 FGC Gathering in Toledo – will join us for “Water and the Grandmothers” to benefit an indigenous grandmother-led campaign, the Women and Water Coming Together Symposium.

The Justice, Environment, & the Arts series brings together community partners and Friends to intersect our concerns in creative ways. The series is organized by Mey Hasbrook, whose ministry is under KFM’s care. The series is also part of the Fellowship of Quakers in the Arts’ annual campaign, “Peace and Justice.”

More information is available on this Facebook event listing and Mey’s web site (for those who don’t have a Facebook account).
