Racial Justice Goals

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

Serving Our Hungry Neighbors
Equal Education

Providence Meeting has been assisting our neighbors in Upper Darby by providing food for over thirty years. “Our meeting remains a part of a large consortium of faith communities in Delaware County which serves dinners at the Life Center in Upper Darby. When Covid restrictions went into effect, we pivoted to delivering dinners to the Life Center for just those who live there (not actually serving the food), and added a once weekly meal for 100 people delivered to Christ Lutheran Church in Upper Darby. These meals feed those sheltered at home and others needing food.

The Climate Crisis
Providence members as well as other members of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting Eco-Justice Collaborative are actively ministering about this grave concern. These Friends are travelling throughout the yearly meeting.
