New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Freedom & Justice Crier

The Freedom and Justice Crier is a magazine of the NEYM Committee on Racial, Social and Economic Justice, currently published once a year. We invite all New England Friends to participate.

Why not write an article for consideration? For instance;

  • How has the issue of white privilege touched your life? 

  • How have you seen classism effect Friends? sexism?

  • What are the spiritual consequences and brokenness related to living in a world that hasn't achieved perfection in these justice concerns?

  • What does that still small voice say to inform us of our responsibilities in this regard?

  • How does your Meeting bear witness to this work?

 Contact the RSEJ clerk for more information.
