Calls for Spirited Action

We no longer do Calls for Spirited Action, but you can find our past calls listed below that are still readily available to listen to. Currently, instead of these calls, what we do now are Sanctuary Everywhere webinars


Listen to past calls

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 hear from other Quakers from the around the country who speak about strategies for how to engage in collective social change work.
