PROVIDENCE

FRIENDS MEETING

You Are Welcome Here

OUR MISSION

Providence Friends Meeting is an active spiritual community that is diverse, welcoming and inclusive.  Meeting for worship is at the center of the life of our community. We are transparent and open in our organization and activities. Our faith leads us to engage in social justice and peace issues and take an active interest in each other’s lives. We seek humbly to deepen and enrich our spirituality, and discover and nurture the Light that is in every person.

Racial Justice Goals

As Providence Friends Meeting acknowledges and honors the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals, we strive to be a culturally safe space where all individuals and groups are treated with respect in regard to their unique cultural needs and differences.

We strive to build a pluralist, anti-racist community that encourages participation and leadership among all Friends, and supports and elevates partners and community members most affected by racism and bias.   In September 2020, our community unified in support of Providence Friends Meeting Statement on Racial Justice and Anti-Racism

Our Climate Crisis

The Climate Crisis Committee was formed at Providence Monthly Meeting in 2021 to help fulfill PMM and PYM’s commitment to address climate change, to promote increased awareness about climate issues in our Meeting, to educate our Meeting on how locally we can reduce our carbon footprints, and to help identify opportunities for witnessing to our faith in creating a more sustainable society.   Reports

Immediate Help Is Needed

Please e-mail Senator Casey (https://www.casey.senate.gov) and Representative Scanlon (https://scanlon.house.gov) and ask them to insist that both the 100% Clean Electricity Standard and the Clean Energy and Sustainability Accelerator are included in the reconciliation bill they pass this fall.  

Click here for information about our request.   Try to use some of the information to make the reason for your request more specific, and something from your own experience that makes investing in clean energy important to you. 

The Friends Committee on National Legislation is actively supporting the Clean Energy Standard, but only the Eco-Justice Collaborative is informing Friends about the Accelerator. Rep Scanlon already voted for the Accelerator twice, and Sen Casey’s website suggests that he would support it.
