Bethesda Friends Meeting (BFM) puts its faith into action through engagement in peace-building, social justice, and environmental stewardship. Advocacy, education, and financial support of community groups are among the paths toward that goal. This work is led by the Peace and Social Justice Committee (P&SJ) and by other groups set up by BFM Friends, such as the Environmental Sustainability Group.
Bethesda Friends Meeting has sponsored various Forums and Workshops, both at the Morella Library in downtown Bethesda and, more recently, via Zoom.
Monday, October 5 & 6, 2020: A White Historian Explores Black Voting Rights --with Susan Strasser
Monday, June 10, 2019: Workshop on "Reversing Global Warming: Introduction to Drawdown"
