    April 1: Help make breakfast for our vulnerable neighbors. Convene at 6:15 am at So Others Might Eat. For more information, contact Betsy Bramon at betsy.bramon@gmail.com

    April 2:  Author Talk At a time of deep concern about attacks on minority groups and religious communities, many of us ask ourselves what would we do if targeted persecution became more prevalent in the United States.  Author Mary Dingee Fillmore will visit FMW to talk about these issues as reflected in her new historical novel, An Address in Amsterdam.  It is the story of a young Jewish woman who joins the anti-Nazi underground, set against the backdrop of how the people of Amsterdam responded to Nazi persecution.  Sunday, April 2, 2017 from 12:15 – 1:45 at FMW.  

    April 2: William Penn House Potluck & Dialogue Tonight’s topic is racial and economic diversity in Quaker camps, presented by Dyresha Harris and Jamie DeMarco. Bring a dish to share. 515 East CapitolSt.SE, www.williampennhouse.org, 202.543.550
