Quaker Activist Gathering 2017

14 October 2017, LIFT Islington

The booking form is closed, but there are still places left so you can turn up for the start of the day 10:00 and fully join in.

What does our Quaker faith prompt us to do in the world?
Join Quaker Peace & Social Witness and US Friend and activist George Lakey for a day of sharing, workshops, networking, and movement-building.

Quakers converge on Pendle Hill with banners and flags to protest plans of fracking in Lancashire

An action-focused day for Friends who identify as activists, framed in worship. An opportunity to meet with others, connect, learn, plan and be energised and inspired.
