Animals enrich our lives – as part of nature, as pets, as helpers, as research subjects, as food. We will share concern for the welfare of all animals. Feel free to bring photos or well-mannered animals. See the newsletter, website or contact Robin Harper for guidelines, more information, or to arrange for pet sitting afterwards.

Nancy Milio will discuss what Quakers, as Friends Committee on National Legislation, et al., must be aware of when seeking new opportunities for success toward goals of peace and justice, while taking into account an unpredictable President, right wing opposition, and a conservative Supreme Court.
