This year, the American Friends Service Committee celebrates its Centennial year. For 100 years, AFSC has been working faithfully for social change, putting Quaker testimonies into practice around the world. AFSC and Friends need each other in this moment when witness for peace, equality, and community is all the more essential.
Featured here are five stories from AFSC staff, partners and supporters who are following the leadings of Spirit into work for justice, peace, and love.
We encourage you to use these stories and the queries that follow them as guides for reflection and sharing in meeting for worship, with your family, or with a committee or other group from your meeting. How is Spirit moving you to respond?
If you would like to participate in one of the many ways we support Friends in working for lasting peace with justice, please visit the Friends Engage webpage for more information about programs of action and accompaniment.
Help us begin our next century by contributing to support AFSC's programs around the world, as well as AFSC-supported organizing efforts among Friends. Go to www.afsc.org/friendsdonate to give to these shared efforts today.
Below, you can download the PDF of the Let Your Life Speak booklet and read the full interviews with each featured person.
