Apology to Afro-Descendants—Next Steps
In following up to the Apology to Afro-Descendants approved by New York Yearly Meeting at Fall Sessions 2013, the Yearly Meeting's Ministry Coordinating Committee proposed that a series of statements and queries related to next steps toward racial healing be sent to Friends to help us focus our attention on possible next steps. We have been posting a statement and query each week leading up to Spring Sessions. Week Five's statement and query appear below. Click the following to see all the statements and queries so far. Friends are encouraged to share these queries with other Friends in your meeting.
Week Five Statement: Some Friends of Color have said that they are not really seen in our Yearly Meeting.
