About

Come to Care for the Earth

What inspires their witness for the Earth? What are Friends organizations in North America already doing? 

Connect with how God is at work in our lives addressing the multiple crises which threaten the web of life.

Join us for an important conversation with:

  • Cherice Bock, Sierra Cascades YM
  • Adrian Halverstadt, Rocky Mountain YM
  • Shelley Tanenbaum, Pacific YM & Quaker Earthcare Witness

Susanna Mattingly, from the FWCC World Office in London, will also share stories from Friends from around the world, discussing how climate disruption has impacted their lives and how their faith inspires them to take action.

There will be both Friday and Saturday sessions, inviting Friends to consider how we are called to work together in care for the earth. We see this as the next step in our efforts at facilitating grass-roots sharing about our common need for caring for the earth.
