Quaker Call-NC

An Urgent Call to the Religious Society of Friends went out in May 2022 inviting Friends into a national dialogue on the urgent threats to our democracy and what’s at stake. https://quakercall.net/

The national Urgent Call Steering Committee has identified Pennsylvania and North Carolina as two swing states where Friends may play a crucial role in protecting free and fair elections–our democracy.

Friends throughout North Carolina are coming together to provide resources and to invite Friends into discernment and ACTION, to become engaged in various ways to support the election and strengthen our democracy.

STATE-WIDE CALL: THURSDAY, MAY 23

The Quaker Call to Action-NC Steering Committee invites you to our first state-wide Zoom call on Thursday, May 23, 7:00pm.
Our first call will be an opportunity to come together to share concerns, to learn what Friends are already doing to protect Democracy and how QCNC can facilitate connections and action.
Diane Randall will bring a message from the national Urgent Call Steering Committee.
Join us to learn about ways to get engaged: 1) supporting local election officials, 2) voter protectors, 3) poll observers, 4) voter registration and get-out-the-vote activities, 5) working in cross-racial efforts to protect elections and strengthen democracy.
