Manhattan Meeting (NYYM) has been involved in international humanitarian assistance in education and health care, and is considering its work in the upcoming years, including economic development assistance through NYYM and other Quaker Yearly Meetings.
We Friends have a 'responsibility' in our own business affairs, in letting our lives, our investments, and our business speak. We sometimes like to learn more about how Quaker and wider world investors and business managers are also influenced by their own integrity and 'responsibility'.
