Quaker Action: From resistance to rebuilding (Summer 2018)

Across the U.S. and around the world, AFSC stands with communities in working for positive social change. Together, we are proposing ideas that will help shape the future of our societies—seeking alternatives to mass incarceration, advocating immigration policies that affirm human dignity, investing in human potential here in the U.S. and in places like Somalia, engaging in healing and reconciliation, and abandoning the wasteful way of warmongering.
