News & Announcements

The Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting on July 22nd, 2018 was an amazing, spirit filled gathering. Hosted at and by the Ujima Friends Peace Center, the event was filled with Spirit - in worship, in hospitality, program and business. A large turnout swelled the Worship room, and many F/friends stayed for a bountiful spread, and an inspiring presentation. Dr. Ayesha Imani shared the remarkable achievements of the Ujima Friends Peace Center in its first year, grounded in Spirit, created collaboratively, with and for the local community.


The Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting on April 22nd, 2018 was a wonderful experience for all who attended, in part due to the famed Green Street hospitality, ie "the eatin' meeting" and a wonderful experiential program that was facilliated by Green Street members Tracey Smith and Valerie Anderson on "Spiritual Strengthening and Healing". Refreshed with tools to nourish ourselves and our communities - participants joined in for a productive business session. Minutes will be posted shortly.
