Witness Coordinating Committee


Witness Coordinating Committee—An Introduction

Excerpted from Witness Coordinating Committee's Handbook page.

The Witness Section comprises those committees and representatives to Quaker bodies that try to make visible the traditional testimonies and newer concerns of Friends in ways that extend beyond the Society of Friends. Its work attempts to express beliefs in action. The Witness Coordinating Committee (WCC) functions as an enabling body of the section.

The Sharing Fund, a coordinated annual giving appeal under the care of Witness Coordinating Committee, assembles funds for the use of committees whose primary functions are in the area of projects of outreach sponsored by New York Yearly Meeting. Witness Coordinating Committee establishes goals for the Sharing Fund based on the recommendation of its constituent committees and exercises general oversight of the fund.
