How can YFM further the work of Antiracism?
Many meetings have taken the approach of adopting BYM's Statement on Anti-racism and also incorporating these queries into their practices:
How could this decision affect those who have been harmed by racist behavior?
To what degree have privilege, class, stereotypes, assumptions, and our ability to include other perspectives affected this decision? Will this decision promote equity, diversity, and inclusiveness? Will it enable us to be more friendly and whole?
How will we provide opportunities for those most likely to be directly affected by our decision to influence that decision?
How does this decision support the declaration of our Yearly Meeting that we are an anti-racist faith community?
