Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting to act on Mass Incarceration

On May 14, 2017, CPMM approved the following minute on mass incarceration:

As Quakers, we are proud of our abolitionist forebears.  To continue to claim that legacy with integrity we cannot be silent in the face of the 21st century face of slavery:  mass incarceration.  Silence is complicity.

By the time you read this I’ll be back in Britain for my equality traveling ministry to share the vision expressed in “Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians got it right and how we can, too.”

In August a number of British Friends volunteered, following my keynote of the Britain Yearly Meeting Gathering, to organize an October tour. They’ve organized venues in both Scotland and England, including bookshops, universities, and Meetinghouses. The tour includes a national gathering of Quaker activists.
