Promoting friendship as a radical foundation for social change, the Oberlin Friendship Circle seeks to build a community among people of all religious and cultural identities. We mobilize for peace deeper than the absence of conflict, and for ethics deeper than the demand of justice. We engage in community learning and service rooted in caring partnership beyond obligation.
The Friendship Circle created the first Friendship Day at Oberlin College in the spring 2010. We continue to focus on this annual celebration as a ritual expression of our mission.
