Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Kennett Friends Meeting

The "About" Tab has the best information about our meeting. Please click here to check it out!

As Friends, we are guided by our belief that there is that of God in every person, and thus our belief in human equality. Kennett Friends Meeting recognizes that we have been slow to understand how the legacy of slavery and continuing systemic racism devalue all Black people and damage Black communities. As a privileged group, we are awakening to a deeper awareness of the ways we have participated, both consciously and unconsciously, in the system of White Supremacy resulting in racism and oppression. We are called to actively acknowledge, bring to light, and abolish structures, institutions, language, and thought processes which support the profound injustice of White Supremacy. We affirm that Black lives matter and we support the Black Lives Matter movement. 

We know that now is a time for action. We pledge to continue educating ourselves, to examine Quaker institutions and literature, to work with community organizations and anti-racist movements, and to engage our government representatives in ongoing efforts to confront and eradicate White Supremacy. We pledge our resources in support of these efforts.
