Quaker Earthcare Witness has published a bi-monthly Quaker Eco-Bulletin reporting on "Information and Action Addressing Public Policy for an Ecologically Sustainable World," covering a variety of topics. Each issue of QEB is a four-page article about timely legislative or corporate policy issues affecting our society's relationship to the earth.
- Information from a faith-based perspective about upcoming government or corporate policy decisions.
- Sources for additional information.
- Action opportunities.
The vision of Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW) includes "integrating into the beliefs and practices of the Religious Society of Friends the Truths that God's Creation is to be held in reverence in its own right, and that human aspirations for peace and justice depend upon restoring the Earth's ecological integrity." As a member organization of Friends Committee on National Legislation, QEW seeks to strengthen Friends' support for FCNL's witness in Washington, D.C., for peace, justice, and an earth restored.
QEB's purpose is to advance Friends' witness on public and institutional policies that affect the earth's capacity to support life. QEB articles aim to inform Friends about public and corporate policies that have an impact on society's relationship to the earth, and to provide analysis and critique of societal trends and institutions that threaten the health of the planet.
