Quaker Action, Quaker Process Lecture Series, 2014-2015

Friends Speak on Activism, Nonviolent Communication, Anti-violence, and Speaking Truth to Power

Swarthmore Friends Meeting is located in the heart of Swarthmore College, a college campus where many students, faculty and staff share so many of our social values, yet most have never met us and are largely unaware of what we do. Quaker Action, Quaker Process is a series of talks sponsored by the Meeting during academic year 2014-15 in which prominent Quakers will speak at the College about their activism. The aims of the series are to bring established Quakers into the College’s discourses and conversations, to strengthen a sense of community with the College, to offer something of value to the academic community, and to open our doors more widely for visitors. We are also arranging a community dinner before the keynote lecture, and a series of Quiet Study Evenings for students, with food, in the Meetinghouse during finals week. The series is supported by a grant from Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.
