New York Yearly Meeting is the gathering of Quaker meetings (congregations) in New York State, northern New Jersey, and southwestern Connecticut.
NYYM comprises a community—an extended fellowship of Friends and their local meetings:
We have meetings that have no pastors and worship in expectant, waiting silence, and we have meetings that do have pastors and have worship services with hymns, prayers, Bible readings, and sermons. Some meetings combine elements of both.
Founded in 1900, Friends General Conference is an association of local and regional Quaker organizations primarily in the United States and Canada. FGC is a volunteer led association. Our focus areas and related projects are determined by volunteers representing our affiliates and consistent with FGC’s organizational Minute of Purpose and Vision Statement. What was once an association of seven yearly meetings holding a biennial "general conference" is now a coalition of sixteen yearly meetings and twelve directly affiliated monthly meetings.
Powell House is the conference and retreat center of New York Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). Located in rural Columbia County, our mission is to foster spiritual growth after the manner of Friends and to strengthen the application of Friends’ testimonies in the world.
We offer programs for all ages.
We rent this quiet space for your family reunions, school retreats, church groups, and small conferences.
For 80 years, the Friends Committee on National Legislation has been an unwavering voice for peace and vehicle for change on Capitol Hill. Beyond that, FCNL’s true impact lies in how it facilitates personal transformation through democratic participation among its vast community of advocates
AFSC works with communities worldwide to challenge injustice and build conditions for lasting peace. We are steadfast in our commitment to nonviolence and our belief in the transformative power of love to overcome conflict and oppression.
Quaker House is a manifestation of the Friends’ Peace Testimony. Based in Fayetteville, NC, home of Fort Liberty, Quaker House provides counseling and support to service members who are questioning their role in the military; educates them, their families, and the public about military issues; and advocates for a more peaceful world.
