Black Lives Matter

We agree with other member organizations in the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience that silence in the face of injustice is unacceptable.  As we mourn the death of George Floyd, we join our voices with all others who are calling for peace, justice and equality for all. We look forward to the day when all lives matter in America, and that day will come only when Black Lives Matter. Our mission at The 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse Museum derives from the 19th century members of the Meetinghouse. A small Quaker community in rural New York witnessed, and often led, reform movements that changed democracy in America—especially for Native Americans, African Americans and women. We keep their legacy alive as we promote the same values and goal today; their legacy is our inspiration and provides our direction.

 

As the African American civil rights leader and Quaker Bayard Rustin once said: “When an individual is protesting society’s refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him.”  

ABOUT US

A small Quaker community built a simple meetinghouse in rural western New York - and from that vantage point witnessed (and often led) reform movements that changed democracy in nineteenth century America.
