Addressing the Imbalance
28 June 2022 - 28 June 2022
19:00 - 20:30
Quakers are beginning to consider how we can address the inequalities that result from our past involvement in global slavery and colonialism. Alongside the 2022 Swarthmore Lecture we ask – how do we address the imbalance?
In her lecture Helen says that, as Quakers, our apology will be hollow unless we are willing to give up some of the advantages we have gained from hundreds of years of inequality. In this session, facilitated by Helen Minnis, we will have a chance to reflect on this and share our own ideas about how we might address structural inequality and injustice.
