A workshop on racial micro aggressions. Learn some simple things that create walls or welcome.

The work on micro aggressions is one piece of our work of living into the Minute (2016-64) on white supremacy approved by New England Yearly Meeting at its 2016 sessions.

We are complicit in white supremacy. We at New England Yearly Meeting have been “colonized” by our white supremacist culture and fall short of our full potential as a gathered body of Quaker Meetings because of this colonization.

We commit to engaging in interrupting white supremacy in ourselves:

  • within individuals
  • interpersonally
  • in our meetings
  • and at all system levels of NEYM

To start this, we ask Permanent Board to explore an external cultural competency audit of New England Yearly Meeting.

Please join with Friends for Racial Justice as we continue this commitment to interrupt white supremacy at Friends Meeting at Cambridge.
