Last fall, Northern Yearly Meeting created a working group to address systematic racism within the meeting and facilitate anti-racist efforts in the wider community. You can find a link to the group below; their resources focus on promoting anti-racist education and action.
The NYM working group also provided some resources to support Minneapolis protesters and the wider movement for racial justice, linked below.

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting has suspended all meetings at the Meetinghouse due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are holding virtual Meeting for Worship each Sunday at 10:30 via Zoom. If you are not on our distribution list for the link and would like to join us, please contact Cindy Robinson, co-clerk, ([email protected]). She will provide you with the link. Anyone having difficulties getting the Zoom app or using it can also contact Cindy.
The meetinghouse will be open on Sunday, March 15, for Meeting for Worship. Cindy will open the meetinghouse, and Kay will be there for childcare. There will be no First Day lesson. We encourage people who choose to attend to continue the practice we began last week of greeting each other without touching and of maintaining a social distance during worship. The Forum scheduled for this Sunday, on becoming an anti-racist meeting, will be postponed until April 26.
Rainfall in Northfield has set records this year, which brings to mind our RAIN GARDEN… an inviting surprise tucked behind the Meetinghouse at 512 Washington.
