The NPYM Peace and Social Concerns Committee is holding a Sharing Session on Native Issues on April 25 at 6:30 Pacific/ 7:30 Mountain. The Sharing Session gives meetings and individuals an opportunity to share actions they are taking to support indigenous people. Please share this opportunity with your Meeting or worship group. Register here to get the Zoom link.
As a reminder, three minutes are being seasoned for possible action at Annual Session this year. They are all linked at npym.org. If your Meeting has not taken them up yet, please consider calling attention to them.
- Minute of Support for Indigenous People (contact Laurie Childers or Mackenzie Barton-Rowledge with feedback)
- A Quaker Statement on Migration (contact Peter Husby or Linnea Wang with feedback)
- Minute supporting the end of hate crimes targeting Asian Americans (contact Celia Castle or Theo Mace with feedback)
An epistle from Salmon Bay Friends concerning the 13th Amendment also appears at npym.org, for reflection by Meetings and Worship Groups.
