plight of other people concerns us as Friends. While many churches
participate in programs to help the needy, we at our Meeting go way
Because we believe that there is that of God in everyone, we believe
in human equality before God. Over the years, we have discovered and
taken stands against various forms of discrimination, including
supporting the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s and 1970s.
We, too, help those in need by locally supporting the Lord’s Pantry
in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, and by offering disaster relief by
collecting needed goods and helping those affected by natural
disasters to rebuild their homes and lives by participating in
workcamps and service projects that help those less fortunate.
We also work with groups that have been victimized by prejudice. But
often this work has been an uphill battle because of the resistance
by those that are prejudiced.
