Please Join Radnor Meeting for Two Upcoming Forums:
On January 28, Radnor Meeting will host a Video and Discussion on Climate, Race and Justice. Ecological destruction, income inequality and racial injustice are not isolated concerns. They are systematically interconnected, rooted in the adaptive failure of our growth-based economic system. This gathering offers a broader context for your witness and also offers a sense of common purpose to our distinctive leadings. This session will include 30 minutes of video with approx. 40 minutes of breaks for worship sharing or discussion to address our 4 queries.
On February 25, Radnor Meeting will host a Forum on the History of Ramallah Friends School and the Ramallah Friends Meeting. Dr. Sa’ed Atshan will be speaking with us about the history of the Ramallah Friends School and the Ramallah Friends Meeting which he attended as a student. RFS is an important Quaker institution on the West Bank, and was founded in 1869. Sa’ed’s perspective as a former student of RFS, Quaker and professor of peace studies will complement last year’s forum presented by Rebecca Mays, a former teacher at the school. Sa’ed is an Assistant Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at Swarthmore College, and has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union, the UN High Commission on Refugees, Human Rights Watch, Seeds of Peace, the Palestinian Negotiations Affairs Department, and the Government of Dubai. Dr. Atshan is a Quaker who grew up in Palestine, attended Westtown School, graduated from Ramallah Friends School, and is also an LGBTQ rights activist.
