Friends on the Move shares the recent travels of Canadian Friends Service Committee in carrying out our peace and social justice work. Our newsletter Quaker Concern comes out three times a year and each edition includes this brief section Friends on the Move.

This section describes our journies to realize our mission. CFSC alleviates suffering and develops transformative and sustainable approaches to human rights, justice, and peace. We act through practical assistance, research, education, and policy dialogues.

Our vision is a world in which dignity, justice, peace, human rights, and harmonious relationships with creation are fostered and upheld.

Quakers seek to experience and answer to that of God in all creation. In living out this experience, CFSC’s values are rooted in the Quaker testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and respect for all creation.
