After the 2018 the institutional assessment on systemic racism to identify and address structural oppression within FGC as an institution and among FGC-affiliated Monthly and Yearly Meetings, a committee was formed of volunteers and staff to support the organization and affiliated meetings to carry forward the assessment’s recommendations.

Transparency and collaboration have been a priority of this committee from the beginning. The hope is that this page will shed light on the committees work as well as help inspire and resource others in moving towards embodying an actively anti-racist community.

Call to Action

Demographic Data Subcommittee

The Demographic Data Subcommittee aims to collect demographic data from Yearly Meetings to get a clearer sense of where Friends of Color worship. This information will help us to better shape FGC’s priorities and program offerings. We ask that Friends encourage their Yearly Meeting to participate with this effort.

Yearly Meetings can submit this information using the below form.

5-Year Report Subcommittee

The 5-Year Report Subcommittee is drafting a report to track FGC’s progress towards becoming a fully antiracist organization since 2018. We are seeking feedback from Friends regarding their experience at FGC events to inform this report. We intend to share a full report with Central Committee and the wider community in October 2024.

Please complete the following survey and circulate it to other Friends who worship with FGC-affiliated meetings.

The 5-Year Report Subcommittee will be hosting several virtual focus groups to replicate those conducted in the original Institutional Assessment:

  • June 12, 8 PM ET (BIPOC only)
  • June 13, 8 PM ET
  • June 18, 2 PM ET

Please check back at this page soon for more information about how to register for a virtual focus group.

We will also offer opportunities for Friends to join a focus group in person at the 2024 Summer Gathering at Haverford College. For more information, please review the schedule at the Gathering’s People of Color Center when it becomes available.
