History

Philadelphia Yearly Meeting is a Quaker faith community, an association of 103 Quaker meetings, and an organization - all working together to nurture Quaker faith and practice in today’s world. Quakerism is a faith of personal experience and direct communion with God, a faith of continuing revelation; and a faith of living our values in the secular world. All who seek to deepen their spiritual lives are welcome!

Mission

Our mission is to re-engage Quakers and help them follow individual leadings in efforts to abolish slavery. This work is under the care of the Peace & Concerns Standing Committee.
