Calls for Spirited Action

Calls for Spirited Action

Join us each month from September through May as we engage in conversation about the work of AFSC, and how Quakers can be involved in evolving movements for social change. These monthly calls are an opportunity to learn from AFSC staff and others about specific focus issues and campaigns, and hear ideas of how to get involved. Each one is also an opportunity to speak with other Quakers from the around the country about strategies for how to engage in collective social change work.

We will begin our new series of calls this September. Find out more about the subject and presenters for these monthly calls, below.

Each call will be held from 8:30-9:30pm ET.  You can join by dialing 866-740-1260 and entering access code 2419995#.
