The “Regular Days” of programming, worship, and meetings for business will begin the evening of Wednesday June 12 with a meeting for welcoming and conclude with meeting for worship on Sunday morning.

Report from the Institutional Assessment on Racism Task Force: Recommendations & FGC Central Committee 2018 Discernment
Two years after Friends General Conference’s governing body approved the initiation of an institutional assessment on systemic racism; a full report and summary with recommendations are now available. Based on this report and recommendations, FGC’s governing body, Central Committee, has approved a minute to commit FGC to becoming an anti-racist organization in a multi-year process.  There was strong unity in the body, which gives hope to many. The discernment process that brought us to this unity further revealed why FGC needs a spirit-led intervention to become an anti-racist organization – many of the processes that inform our faith community are tainted by the destructive power of white supremacy and require a widespread commitment to transformation.

You can read the report and download the report and summary at the FGC website
