As Americans moved west, so did the Friends; establishing yearly meetings all the way to the Northwest. Oregon Yearly Meeting was established in 1893 and in 1971 the name was changed to Northwest Yearly Meeting to reflect the inclusion of meetings, or churches, in Washington and Idaho. The worldwide Friends is called Evangelical Friends International-North America.
