April Earthcare Engagement for Your Community

- Posted by QEW Staff in ActivismTimely,  | 2 min read

April marks the beginning of yearly meeting gathering season for many of us in North America. We’re sharing a few resources to help strengthen the connection between Friends in your region and Quaker Earthcare Witness.

Please consider taking the following actions as you prepare for your summer events:

1. Invite a QEW Presents! speaker to do a workshop at your yearly meeting’s annual sessions. (Looking for another topic that relates to your gathering’s theme? Email Hayley at hayley@quakerearthcare.org and we can brainstorm.)

2. Is your meeting happening in person? Request materials from info@quakerearthcare.org to help with your tabling needs. (We can also share virtual tabling materials if your yearly meeting is offering that option).

Thank you!

Events This Month

  • Worship Sharing with Quaker Earthcare Witness and Ben Lomond Quaker Center

    Quaker Earthcare Witness is hosting monthly online worship sharing groups in partnership with Ben Lomond Quaker Center.

    In worship sharing, we gather in small groups to focus on a particular question (or questions) to explore our own experience and share with each other more deeply than we would in normal conversation. It seeks to draw us into sacred space, where we can take down our usual defenses, and encounter each other in “that which is eternal.” We welcome all to join us!

    Together we are creating more opportunities for Friends to be in spiritual community with one another.

    Register here.

    *Please note this event is at 7pm Eastern time.

  • COP Forum

    COP27 (the annual climate conference) this past November in Egypt was historic. For the first time, countries came together globally to create a 'Loss and Damage' Fund. Loss and Damage is the way the United Nations refers to environmental justice - providing support for countries that have experienced the worst of climate change, have the fewest resources to become resilient, and historically did the least to cause the problem.
    QEW is sponsoring a forum to hear from five climate activists/advocates/policy analysts about their experience at the COP. Peniel Ibe (AFSC) and Wes Gobar (Yale School of the Environment) attended as part of the Black Hive, Clarence Edwards (FCNL) and Frank Granshaw (QEW) attended remotely, and Lindsey Cook (QUNO) has attended the past 9 COPs. They will share their perspectives and experiences.
    Please note this event is at 1pm Eastern Time/ 10am Pacific.
