On Saturday, October 8, FCNCL will hold its Annual Meeting from 9:15 am to 12:30 pm. We look forward to your joining us to conduct the business of our Committee!
During our Annual Meeting we will hear from a guest speaker, Rob Schofield of North Carolina Policy Watch, on the topic: “Protecting Democracy in North Carolina.” After Rob’s remarks we will break out into discussion groups to generate ideas as to how we can act as Quakers and FCNCL members to defend our democracy.
Here is brief bio for Rob: Rob Schofield, NC Policy Watch Director, has more than three decades of experience as a journalist, commentator, and lawyer. In addition to overseeing the day-to-day project operations, Schofield writes a widely-circulated weekly opinion column and handles numerous public speaking and electronic media appearances. He also delivers a radio commentary that’s broadcast weekdays on Raleigh’s MIX 101.5/WRAL-FM and hosts News and Views, a weekly news magazine/podcast that airs on multiple online platforms and North Carolina radio stations.
