Updates & Resources

  1. Statement Time for Bipartisan Action to Protect Our Care 

    The Friends Committee on National Legislation strongly condemns President Trump’s recent executive order to halt federal cost-sharing reduction payments and calls on Congress to pass the bipartisan Alexander-Murray deal.

  2. Update Passing the Dream Act: What You Can Do 

    We have a very short window in which we need to get Congress to act and pass legislation that protects young immigrants who grew up in the United States from deportation and allows them to study, work, and live in the country they consider home.

  3. Background Principles for Gun Violence Prevention 

    Gun violence in the U.S. requires urgent, dramatic action. The United States’ gun violence rates stand alone among other wealthy nations, with nearly 100 people dying from guns every single day.

  4. Update U.S. Role in the World: Peaceful Engagement or Military Might? 

    In the midst of efforts to radically reorganize the federal government, bolster military strength over diplomacy, development, and peacebuilding, Congress is pushing back.
