Join Quaker Voluntary Service (QVS) and the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8:00 p.m. EDT for a conversation about why and how to exercise our values in the 2022 elections. We’ll talk about where we are politically and how our spiritual grounding connects to our involvement as activists, organizers, and voters.
Hilary Burgin of QVS will host and FCNL’s José Woss will provide an overview of federal elections policy. The majority of our hour together will feature training on relational organizing and opportunities to get more civically involved in the last month before this crucial election, led by Lillie Catlin of NextGen America.
Hilary joined Quaker Voluntary Service in January 2015 as the Boston Coordinator. In that role, she supported three cohorts of Fellows through the QVS program. In November 2018, she stepped into the Executive Director role.
Hilary sees QVS as an integral component of the Quaker movement the world needs now, and is excited about continuing to build our community of support nationwide.
