Quaker Earthcare Witness - April meeting - setting priorities

At its April meeting in Chicago, Quaker EArthcare Witness set some priorities for the next year:  focus on communications and outreach - particularly engaging with young people; telling our story; projects such as the mini-grants; finca la bella farm in Costa Rica and connecting with community initiatives for sustainability.

The next QEW meeting will be in Chicago in October.   The focus of that gathering will be food and biodiversity.   Marcia Cleveland of Friends Committee on National Legislation will be the keynote speaker on Friday, October 21.   The QEW Steering Committee has pledged matching funds to help support Quaker young people who would like to attend.   More information will be available soon on the QEW website:  www.quakerearthcare.org
