Fall and Spring Retreats for Friends of Color

2019 Spring Retreat for Friends of Color in Ben Lomond, CA.
2017 Fall Retreat for Friends of Color in Stony Point, NY.

Each year, FGC’s Ministry on Racism Program sponsors opportunities in the Spring and Fall for Friends of Color and their families to come together to build multigenerational community through:

  • Mutual support and sharing
  • Worship
  • Exploring our Faith
  • Sharing what brought us to Friends
  • Identifying ways to support each other

Previous retreats have been held in upstate New York, the Philadelphia area, Washington DC, Chicago, and California. The 2020 in-person Spring and Fall retreats have been postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak.

The 2020 Virtual Fall Retreats for Friends of Color:“Quakers of Color: Strength, Wisdom, Caring, and Sharing” were held October 30 - November 1, 2020 and November 13 -15, 2020.


 The 2021 Virtual Spring Retreat for Friends of Color and their partners will be held March 5-7, 2021. Check back on this page for further information and to register!
