The Chat & Chew Picnic is a sort of ‘mixer’, an opportunity for folks to get together and get to know each other more deeply. The food and table topics are enablers to help us sit around and share with each other. Over the years, we have noted that small groups help nurture our community.Chat & Chew is a small group opportunity with minimal commitment!
Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting to act on Mass Incarceration
On May 14, 2017, CPMM approved the following minute on mass incarceration:

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.
