Inequality: this year’s Swarthmore Lecture will be by Catherine West MP

The Quakers’ 2017 Swarthmore Lecture will be given by Catherine West MP. She will focus on addressing inequality, tackling poverty and promoting social justice, and examine how we can effect change through politics – both participatory and representative – whilst living out our faith in the world.

Catherine says “For me, actively advancing the cause of equality is both a political imperative and a spiritual vocation.”

+ Message for anyone who attends Bath Quaker Meeting from our friendly Bath Treasurer Sally:

If you want to go to YMG at University of Warwick this summer but are hesitating because of the cost, then please hesitate no longer! We can offer you (and your family) a bursary to make it affordable – please have a word with one of the Overseers who will be able to help arrange this.
