Quaker Voice Friends and Supporters,
We urge you, as you are led, to send the Quaker Voice Statement on Racial Inequity (PDF format) to your state legislators, with a cover letter from you requesting action in the coming sessions.
This statement was approved by the Quaker Voice Board for release on June 19, 2020, Juneteenth.
It is based on contributions from the three working groups and from Board members. This document is intended to make a strong statement about the response of Quaker Voice to the national outpouring of outrage over the deaths of so many people of color by law enforcement. Our response arises out of Quaker values and provides a brief outline of our ongoing and future work with the state legislature.
Also, you might let legislators know that Quaker Voice is willing to assist them in working toward meeting the goals in the Statement on Racial Inequity. To ask for our assistance, legislators may contact our Legislative Advocate, Noah Martin, at NoahMartin@QuakerVoiceWa.org
Thank you for all you do!
Quaker Voice Board
