Quaker Action: Free Them All (Fall 2020)

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated communities in the U.S. and around the globe. While it has magnified racism, poverty, and other injustices of our world, it has also reminded us of that we are all interconnected—and that our health and well-being are dependent on how we treat each other. 

In this issue of Quaker Action, you'll read about some of the ways communities worldwide are responding to rising need, with the support of caring people like you. We'll also show you how to get involved with our Free Them All campaign, which calls for the immediate release of people from prisons and jails in this pandemic and builds on AFSC's decades of work toward a world without incarceration.
