Yearly & Monthly Meeting Statements

From time to time, Quakers in Aotearoa/New Zealand have felt it necessary to issue statements on topical issues of social concern. These arise from our long-held Testimonies of peace, integrity, simplicity and equality, and are often prepared at Yearly Meetings. They may be published as embodying the current view of the national body.  Read the Yearly Meeting Statements below:
