Worship in Action: Learning More about the Vanguard S.O.S Campaign & Earth Quaker Action Team’s Upcoming Plans

October 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join Earth Quaker Action Team’s Director of Strategy and Partnership, Eileen Flanagan, and one of EQAT’s founders and board members, Carolyn McCoy, for a Zoom conversation to learn about EQAT’s experience and philosophy of “worship in action” and how this led them to their upcoming meeting for worship outside the home of Vanguard CEO Tim Buckley. This is the latest action as part of their campaign to pressure Vanguard, the world’s second largest asset manager, to end its investments in fossil fuels projects and companies. This will be a great conversation for anyone yearning for deeper Quaker faith in action.

That week of October 3rd also begins a global multi-week campaign of action calling for an end to fossil fuel projects and is the 250th anniversary of the death of Quaker abolitionist John Woolman.

REGISTER HERE (Monday, October 3rd’s  Zoom workshop at 7pm Eastern).

If you’re in the Philadelphia area, consider joining EQAT’s upcoming events.

And if not, please join QEW on October 7th for an online Zoom worship as part of the campaign.

We also recommend that before joining the call, you watch this introductory presentation about the campaign featuring Eileen Flanagan and Ingrid Lakey and check out our webpage that includes background information on Vanguard.
