This year Baltimore Yearly Meeting will cover registration fees for Global Majority Friends to attend the 2024 FGC Gathering, “Rooted in Story.” The Gathering will be held at Haverford College in Haverford, PA, from June 30 – July 6, 2024. If you've never been to an FGC Gathering, it's like a casual Quaker conference, or a week-long spiritual retreat with lots of inter-meeting networking and sharing.

Global Majority Friends in Baltimore Yearly Meeting are invited to register between April 2nd and April 8th. Registration is open on Tuesday, April 2nd 2024 for Friends under 35 and Friends of Color, and anyone registering with them. General registration will open on Tuesday, April 9th 2024. Early registration will close on April 23.  Most Gathering registrations are purchased during the early period.  Registration will re-open on May 1 if it hasn't sold out.   Please visit if you'd like to know more about the Gathering.  For any questions, please reach out to Sabrina at 




The Global Majority Caucus of Baltimore Yearly Meeting held a Trauma Journey Workshop for BYM Global Majority Friends on July 29, 2023 at Stony Run Meetinghouse in Baltimore.  The workshop explored the trauma of racism and shared possible ways of healing from it.  Once you view a recording of the workshop, you may apply for BYM trauma healing funds to pursue a healing path that speaks to you.

The Global Majority Caucus decided that this year, instead of awarding trauma healing funds, with the funds available from the Working Group on Racism, we will support Global Majority Friends' registration at Friends General Conference at Haverford.   Watch out for more details!

BYM Global Majority Friends Caucus

 This group is for Friends of the Global Majority, better known as Friends of Color or Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), to be in touch about matters of mutual concern to those living and worshiping within BYM.  Membership in a BYM meeting is not required, though a connection to BYM meetings or programming would probably be helpful for context in the matters discussed.

If you are a Friend of color and would like to join the Global Majority, please click on the link below and request to join the group;
