Meeting/Church Liaison organizing calls
Join us each month as we discuss how your congregation can engage in the work of AFSC. These monthly calls are an opportunity to learn from AFSC staff 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.
