Speaking out in the world is an essential part of our religious and social witness. Friends are therefore encouraged to express their faith and values whenever suitable opportunities arise, and to use the media confidently for public comment on our concerns. Quaker witness to the world is guided by the Spirit and also governed by our religious discipline. Public expression of corporate Quaker views must spring from discerned positions reached by an appropriate Quaker body.
