Our BLACK LIVES MATTER sign has been recovered and re-installed, thankfully, as it is one way New Garden Meeting can show its commitment to becoming an anti-racist faith community. First Friends Meeting also has a sign opposing racism that reads RACISM HARMS US ALL. Recently, there was a short spot on Fox 8 with members talking about the sign in front of their meetinghouse and their efforts to live up to Friends’ testimony of Equality. Here is the clip.
Another activity shared by Friends from mostly New Garden and First Friends is the NCFF Anti-racism Working Group. Any New Gardeners wishing to join this group are welcome. The next meeting is November 16 at 7pm on Zoom. Contact [email protected] if you would like the link.
