Letters

This page presents a range of letters, actual and sample, on topics of concern to Quakers.

Quakers are good at writing to right wrongs, because they know injustice when they see it, are not inclined to stand idly by, and have the necessary skills.  Individual letters can be effective, and numbers count.  But many Friends lack time, so this page aims to provide ‘starter models’ for other Friends to adapt.  If you have such a letter, send a copy of it to alan@ray-jones.org.uk with the necessary background information, including when it went and how (contact details).  Whether I put it on the page will depend on various factors, so please don’t mind if I don’t, or if I remove it or replace it with a later model on the same topic - or remove the topic entirely. Please let me know whether I may attach your name; or add a note to Friends with any background information useful to other writers; or an answer from the recipient which it would be helpful to report.
