Our world views, as well as opportunities that are available, depend on our background. Definitions of peace, education and equality change according to the experiences of those defining the words. One factor that affects the way we live and relate to each other is race. Although it is not always a primary focus, the American Friends Service
Committee’s commitment to the dignity and worth of each person frequently fosters work on the complicated issues of racism and inequity.
The MARStar newsletter is published by the Middle Atlantic Region of the American Friends Service Committee. This issue explores conversations about race that staff members are having throughout the region. It also includes a letter from our new Interim Regional Director, Nina Laboy.
