Welcome to the Quaker Action Networks
Quaker Action Networks is a platform for building, sustaining and empowering networks for social change. This platform is for the American Friends Service Committee to support that Quakers and other community members do in the pursuit of justice and peace.
The underlying conceptual framework is of Civic Action Networks in which social change is made consciuosly through technology driven movement building through network weaving and taking collective action. Recent social and political movements from the Arab Spring, to the Occupy Movement to #BlackLives Matter have all used technology to quickly build networks and drive action towards change. This platform hopes to support that kind of movement building and advocacy.
