This year, taking advantage of our recent ability to gather Friends from all corners, the American Friends Service Committee Annual Corporation Meeting will be preceded by an exciting series of afternoon/evening seminars on a number of important topics in peace and justice. The presenters will be a mix of AFSC staff and external partners/colleagues. AFSC does peace and justice work in your name—come learn about what they are doing. ALL ARE WELCOME!
