Have you seen the one of Tenaja Henson talking about how their Quaker faith influences their calling to do Spirit-led activism work? They credit Quakerism with leading them to “what is the next uprooting.”

“I find it really interesting to be a person of faith and doing pro-abortion work and reproductive rights work because in so many spaces faith and abortion don’t go together, and I also think that being a Quaker specifically . . . being loud and disruptive has a really weird relationship to being the peaceful pacifist stereotype of Quakerism.”

—Tenaja Henson, member of Lewisburg (Pa.) Meeting,
currently living in Greensboro, N.C.
