Quaker Activist Gathering 2018

3 November 2018, Lancaster

An action-focused day for Quakers who identify as activists, framed in worship. It will be a day to make connections, build common cause, deepen our action through exploring the Quaker aspect of it, and discover how we can work more effectively.

You will have the opportunity to meet other Quakers, learn how Quaker Peace & Social Witness Staff can support your activism, and develop your skills and confidence.
