  2. Update Congress Greenlights Trump’s Dangerous New Nuke

  3. Update Why We Tell Our Stories: Speaking Truth to Power About the Realities of War 

    In the face of nationwide political crises, it can be hard to feel like the voices and actions of any one person—much less my voice, or my actions—can make a difference. But FCNL’s 75-year history of advocacy shows that in fact, it is the work of individuals, of constituents bringing their stories to their members of Congress’ offices, that make change in Washington possible.
