The purpose of FWCC is to encourage fellowship and understanding among all the branches of the Religious Society of Friends.

FWCC brings Quakers together in multiple ways to celebrate God in our lives, to gather the Quaker voice, build networks to address issues of our time, and to unite Friends within our diversity.
