Choose from varied topics likely to include peace and justice issues, international conflict and peace-making, education, economics, spirituality, and other Quaker concerns.

As spiritually sensitive as Rumi, as dedicated to the common good as Pete Seeger, as complex in his characterizations as Joni Mitchell–David Wilcox brings depth, conscience, rollicking energy and gentle humor to his recordings and stage shows.
A superb guitarist with a light baritone voice, David creates songs and stories to touch Friends’ hearts.
To Create a More Perfect Union: A reflective, public conversation concerning the healing of our wounded American historical experience and our possible capacity to be midwives in the birth of a new nation.
An opportunity for Friends to move toward living out a deeper faith and a richer future, based on a more honest encounter with the history of settlement, displacement, slavery, and racial supremacy we have helped to create in our land. This democratic dialogue will be lead by Dr. Vincent Harding, Professor Emeritus of Religion and Human Transformation at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, and his brother/colleague, Dr. George "Tink" Tinker, member of the Osage Nation and Professor of Native American Cultures and Religious Traditions at Iliff. It is their intention that the conversation will be based on hope rather than on guilt. They recommend that Friends also participate, if possible, in the exercise, "This Land Was Your Land: Seeking Right Relationship with America's Native Peoples," on Tuesday or Thursday afternoon.
Stories of Undocumented Youth Take Center Stage
They study in our schools, they play baseball with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in every single way except for one: legally documented.
Jose Mercado, Director and Professor of Theater at the University of Colorado Denver, adapts personal stories from immigrant youth and adults. The live performance will use personal stories to ground the immigration reform debate in the context of real people’s lives.
