Yearly Meeting in Session is going online!

The 2020 Yearly Meeting has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic as an in-person event, but an online version is currently being organized.

The sessions will run August 8-13. The schedule, further info, and everything needed to participate in the sessions will be posted to the ‘Yearly Meeting in Session‘ page as soon as they are ready.

Please bear with us as we navigate this adventure and try all kinds of new things in a short amount of time! There will be orientations in advance for those who need to be learn to use platforms like Zoom.

These sessions will mostly focus on spiritual development, opportunities to socialize and connect, and social and environmental justice. There will no business sessions; the business that normally would have been Yearly Meeting 2020 is being addressed in series of Representative Meetings running this spring and summer, meetings which can be conducted online more easily. (Quakers who have an account on our business site can sign in to read Representative Meeting minutes and documents, then pass the fruit of their discernment onto their representatives. Those without accounts can request one here.)
