As part of our Adult Education focus on the Testimony of Equality in 2022, we will focus on "Quakers and Prisons." We will look at why Quakers have been imprisoned and how the insights gained from that experience (in the light of the Testimony of Equality) have led to significant work with prisoners, their families and governments, seeking to affirm the basic humanity that we all share.
Three sessions will give information & inspiration on projects that AMM members support by personal involvement and/or donations:
Sundays, October 9 & 23
Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) and a personal account of "How I became a Quaker."
Details of all these will be announced on the AMM listserv as reminders and may have preparatory reading suggestions.
Adult Education meeting on Zoom from 9-10 AM.

Children's Fair Supports Unhoused
Our Children's Fair on August 14th was a great success -- the kids planned the event and activities -- all the way from a Staring Contest to Palm Reading and more! Then, they agreed that all proceeds from their fair should go toward support of the Meeting's Unhoused Neighbors!
Above is our young Friend, Hazel, following a shopping trip to purchase food, water, underwear, tarps, and more.
Thanks so much to our inspiring children!
You are leading the way into a better tomorrow!
