In 2021, Friends General Conference’s Ministry on Racism held their annual Fall Adult Retreat for Friends of Color virtually. During that retreat there were multiple small break out groups, one of which was for people who identified as women of Color. During the closing of this retreat the group asked for FGC’s support to continue to support a space for women of color. FGC agreed to support these Friends with providing monthly virtual worships on Zoom. These worships are provided as a place for BIPOC women to come together in community and worship in an environment with other women who experience marginalization in their lives and Quaker meetings because they are a person of Color.
The original group of BIPOC women from the 2021 Fall Adult Retreat for FOC had women from all across the world: India, England and throughout the USA. To ensure as many can join as possible there are two monthly virtual meetings for worship. Each worship is an hour.
The first monthly worship is on the first Monday of the Month at 3:00 PM ET / 2:00 PM CT / 1:00 PM MT / 12:00 PM PT.
The second monthly worship is on the first Thursday of the Month at 8:00 PM ET / 7:00 PM CT / 6:00 PM MT / 5:00 PM PT.
