QEW Steering Committee Meeting, April 23-26 2020

Quaker Earthcare Witness has two face-to-face Steering Committee Meetings each year. All Friends are welcome.

Our meeting will take place at Durham Friends Meeting in Durham, North Carolina. Participants can begin arriving at the Meetinghouse at 2:00 pm on Thursday, April 23 and we will begin our general meeting at 3:00 pm. We will meet all day on Friday and Saturday, and will end with 10 am worship and fellowship with Durham Friends on Sunday, April 26.

We gather to conduct business and plan for our future work, to meet Friends and enjoy fellowship with each other, and to share our stories and what is important to us. We invite friends from near and far to join our meeting. All Steering Committee members are encouraged to attend — we welcome visitors for any or all of our sessions. See a draft agenda here (subject to change).

Wednesday, April 22 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and the beginning of three days of the Global Climate Strike. Youth leaders are calling on everyone to get involved and have designated Wednesday as the day for a mass mobilization. We will keep you updated with how QEW plans on supporting local actions while we are in the area. If you would like to arrive early to be part of a QEW contingent in Durham, we will find housing for you on Tuesday and Wednesday night (as needed). 

Scholarships are available too. Once you click "Register," you will be able to mark your form as "will send payment by check" and include a note with the amount requested.

We'll be sharing more details and advanced documents over the coming weeks, so please check your email. Click here for the travel directions

Please register by March 15 to guarantee housing. Registration after March 15 is subject to housing availability - please register and wait for QEW to contact you to confirm.
