Love Seen in Public: An Interview with Annie Frundle in Kansas City

Annie Frundle, an Avila University social work student, began working half-time with ASFC Kansas City as a social work intern in August. Annie has been learning about AFSC's work and assisted with preparations for the Crossroads peace festival on October 1.

Her placement requires both “macro” experiences (e.g. policy chance, organizing, public education, advocacy) and “micro” experiences (e.g. social work counseling, identification of needed services, etc.)

At the peace festival, Jon Krieg asked Annie why she's interning with AFSC.

Conversations about Race and Equity

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.

Who we are

AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
