“Friends House Moscow: Current Conditions in Russia and the Work of Friends in the Region” with Julie Harlow
Julie Harlow began working toward the fulfillment of the vision of a Quaker presence in Russia immediately after the collapse of the USSR in 1991. Active with the international governing board of Friends House Moscow since its inception, and currently the Clerk, she can share the challenges, disappointments and successes from its beginnings up to the current program. She also speaks knowledgably about conditions in Russia based on research and personal experience traveling there since 1984.
Friends House Moscow is a small NGO in Russia, directed by an international board of Quakers to find and support Russian grassroots organizations. Most of the projects involve orphans, disabled children, CO’s, translating Quaker literature, and supporting AVP.
The evening is free and open to the public.
