AFC Commitment to Racial Justice

In every Alaska Friends Conference decision, Friends shall consider this query: "How does this decision move us toward our goal of becoming an actively antiracist community?”

AFC shall strive to increase financial and practical support for work for justice and social reform led by Black people, indigenous people and people of color.
