In September 2017, Frederick Friends Meeting revised its policy on use of the meetinghouse to make clear that the building may be used by advocacy groups and for discussions on issues. However, use of the building is not compatible with meetings held in support of any political party or any political candidate.

Frederick Friends Meeting asks our Members of Congress to consider and support the approach outlined in a statement from our regional Quaker organization (Baltimore Yearly Meeting), which was sent to the White House and the U.S. State Department. We ask for continued patience, diplomacy and nonmilitary interactions to accomplish true peace-building and a better future for the Korean peninsula. Our nation must reject the false promises of war and threats of war. We urge them to oppose a preemptive military strike against North Korea.

Frederick Friends Meeting (FFM) welcomes the use of its meetinghouse and property. There is a residential tenant on the third floor, and some of the second-floor space is rented by businesses. Use of that space is governed by the tenants’ leases. Other interior spaces and the yard can be reserved for occasional use by appropriate organizations or individuals. The space available for non-FFM groups generally consists of rooms on the first floor and the yard, though special arrangements can be made for use of rooms on the second floor.
