North Pacific Yearly Meeting

Annual Session 2019

July 17-21, 2019

Linfield College, McMinnville, Oregon

 

We welcomed Jay O’Hara as our Friend in Residence. Jay O’Hara is a member of Sandwich Monthly Meeting on Cape Cod, and is a co-founder of the Climate Disobedience Center. A visionary climate activist, Jay works to deepen the spiritual underpinnings of powerful action in the world.

 

The gathering this year had a dual focus. We approved a minute on uprooting systemic racism. This minute has been revised and refined over the past two years, and represents a step forward in our corporate and individual understandings and desire to overcome racism as it presents itself in our country and within the Society of Friends.
