2017 marks RSWR’s 50th anniversary since its origins as the One Percent Fund under the Friends World Committee for Consultation Section of the Americas. We look forward to another 50 years and beyond of building relationships and sharing resources to create greater equity and wellness within the world.

The Right Sharing Board and staff will be hosting several opportunities during 2017 to celebrate. You are invited to join the RSWR Jubilee Celebration on April 22, 2017, at Indianapolis First Friends. The celebration, which will begin at 5 PM, will feature dinner and a keynote address by Colin Saxton, current FUM General Secretary and the original clerk of the RSWR Board.

Other opportunities to celebrate:

  • July 2-8 at the FGC Gathering at Niagara University
  • October on the East Coast, location TBD
