In September last year, the Australian Quakers broke away from a group of 40 major religious, charity, and ethnic groups who were preparing a No campaign if the plebiscite was to go ahead. The Quakers wrote to the PM and publicly advocated for a free vote rather than a plebiscite.
The Quakers have once again spoken out in support of marriage equality, joining some individual Jewish, Uniting, and Baptist groups. Whether this statement will be followed by action remains unclear, but it’s great to have them on board.
