Come to hear Lucy Duncan and Gabbreell James of Greene Street Friends Meeting talk about reparations for African-Americans and what their meeting has done to offer reparations within their religious community. We will have time for questions and comments following the presentation. Come to the Edna Jones Room immediately following the service for a lunch before the program starts. All are welcome!
