Welcome to the Quaker Action Team!

Our goal is to engage Quakers (Unprogrammed, Evangelical, Pastoral and Conservative branches) in climate action, with an emphasis on understanding the value of a carbon fee and dividend approach.  Below you will find many resources beyond the flier and calendar noted above.
