An Important Message from Gail Fletcher and FCNL

This is an effort to encourage you to become a political activist.   In the U.S. Senate, the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015 (S. 2123) is a bipartisan effort to address dangerous overcrowding in federal prisons.

A Letter from the Clerk of SCYM

I am sending this mail to Clerks of SCYM Monthly Meetings, Worship Groups, Quarterly Meetings, and SCYM committees, and others who may be in contact with a lot of people.  Please share this information widely.

Friends Send Epistle from SCYM Representatives Meeting

Friends gathered at Greene Family Camp November 20-22, 2015, to plan the upcoming annual sessions of South Central Yearly Meeting scheduled for March 24-27, 2016.  For the first time, Friends gathered there compiled an Epistle summarizing events of the weekend for the wider Friendship of the Yearly Meeting.  (Many thanks to Val Liveoak for the original idea as well as investing her time and talents in accomplishing this work!).
