Addressing Colonialism and Racism in Quaker Peace and Service Work

22nd May 2021 - 25th June 2021


Quakers have been known for their work for peace, their relief work after natural disasters and wars, and their commitment to working to end injustice for a long time. It can be hard for us to acknowledge that the way we have done and are doing peace and service work may be perpetuating the legacy of colonialism and structural racism. We are not uniquely immune from our colonial history or the racism that is embedded in national and global institutions. This course will help us to understand how our Quaker peace and service work is affected and, most importantly, how we can challenge and change this as we continue to work for peace and justice in the world.

The start date is when course materials and forums become available.

Live sessions are Wednesdays (no session on 16 June) at 19:00-21:00.

A ll times given are UK time.
