QuakerSpeak, November 2023

Nichole Nettleton joined Differently Abled Friends and Allies, a working group under the care of New York Yearly Meeting, for support in living with her disabilities, and has since become an active facilitator of the group’s work.

Nichole offers guidance on how Quakers can be more supportive of members and seekers with disabilities: “Be there for people. Be intentional. And being there doesn’t always mean doing something every minute. It can mean listening, just like when you’re in meeting for worship—the silence is not passive; it’s a very active thing.”
