The Immigrant Solidarity Committee of Charlotte (ISC-C) works for just and humane immigration policy—in our city, state and nation as a whole—to make our community a more welcoming place for all. Our group consists of representatives from organizations and faith communities, as well as committed individuals. We meet on the third Wednesday of every month at the Charlotte Friends Meetinghouse and we always welcome new participants!
For the last five years Charlotte Friends Meeting has joined over 135 area congregations, colleges and YMCAs to partner with the Urban Ministry Center to provide winter shelter to homeless neighbors. Last year this community-wide, inter-faith Room in the Inn program served more than 1,400 people.
Our experience has shown that active participation in the life of the Meeting community can deepen and enrich our understanding of Quakerism and what it means to be a Friend. Participating in committees provides us with opportunities to gain first-hand experience of Quaker principles in action. It also enables us to share and build our own gifts, talents and interests while encouraging others to do the same.
