About the talk:
Quakerism was founded in the mid 1600s, a time of political crisis and conflict in England. Early Friends went to jail by the thousands as they stood up for their beliefs and worked to create a just and equitable world. Drawing on this rich history, as well as her experience as a leader of Earth Quaker Action Team, Eileen Flanagan will provide insight on how the Quaker tradition supports responses to the pressing issues of our day.

She is the board chair of Earth Quaker Action Team, which uses nonviolent direct action to work for a just and sustainable economy. Eileen is the Haverford Friend in Residence  March 19-25 and April 2-15, 2017
