Biographical / Historical

In 1974, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting was restructured: three Coordinating Committees were each given oversight of the committees and programs under its care. The Coordinating Committee II, more frequently referred to as CC-2, had general responsibility for Testimonies and Concerns. The Committee itself consisted of 22 members -- at-large members as well as representatives of its various committees -- and met monthly. It was charged with the periodical review of its programs, discontinuing those which were no longer relevant, and potentially establishing programs to meet current needs. It also kept in touch with monthly meetings in regard to social testimonies. The section fuctioned as a "Collective." It was served by a Coordinator and by a part-time staff person.

In 1998, a system of standing committees replaced the three Coordinating Committees within Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. The Peace and Concerns Standing Committee assumed responsibility for many of the programs that were formerly under CC-2.
