Quakers have a history of working for the rights of the downtrodden. They were one of the first groups to be convinced of the wrongness of slavery and were active in the underground railroad. They were early proponents of women's rights, including the right to preach. They have been instrumental in prison reform and in the improved care and understanding of the mentally ill. Aren't those Quakers great? Let's give them a big hand, folks!
