 First Steps in Becoming a More Diverse Community
Date: 08/13/2017
Time: 11:00:00 AM
Description:

  Beginning on June 18 and continuing through the end of September, all who attend a Meeting for Worship (no matter how often you have been to our Meeting) will be invited and encouraged to answer two questions on a post card as they are led (or to decline to answer either question).

  Bethesda Friends Meeting is interested in including a diversity of people in our meeting activities, especially young adults (ages 18 through 35) and people with various racial and ethnic identities.
--The first question is worded as follows: “We understand that race is a social construct and that all human beings share a common ancestor; nevertheless, how would you describe your racial and/or ethnic identity?”
--The second question is worded as follows: “Are you between the ages of 18 and 35 inclusive?”
  The cards will be collected in a box on the credenza and will be anonymous. Thank you for your participation in this first stage of the endeavor. This has been seasoned by an Ad Hoc Committee, which welcomes all comments, in the full understanding that this is only a first step in our communal reflections on the opportunities and challenges of becoming the diverse community we wish to be.
