The first Benjamin Lay Lecture is coming, God-willing, in spring 2022.

Abington Friends Meeting in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania.

Abington Friends Meeting is holding the first in an annual series of Benjamin Lay Lectures—on current topics of social justice—on a date to be announced, likely in spring 2022, at 520 Meetinghouse Road, Jenkintown, Pennsylvania 19046.

That day will begin at 10am with a Quaker meeting for worship, followed at 11am by the Benjamin Lay Lecture, after which the Meeting community will provide a potluck lunch.

The public will be welcome, and there will be no charge. More details will be posted here and on the websites of Abington Friends Meeting, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, and the American Friends Service Committee.

Benjamin Lay, painted likely without his knowledge in 1758 by William Williams, Sr., commissioned by Deborah Franklin as a gift to her husband Benjamin Franklin.
