Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Christian Friends for Racial Equality was a Seattle organization established in 1942 to promote interracial understanding. Its 17 charter members included Edith Steinmetz, who became the group’s historian. The multi-racial membership fought racial and religious discrimination through education and outreach, and sought to promote understanding through social acquaintance. Group activities included meetings, speakers, and social events. In 1967, the organization changed its name to Christians and Friends for Racial Equality.
