This One Step Would Lift Millions Out of Poverty

Approximately 38.1 million people—more than the population of Canada—lived below the poverty line last year. Congress can change that.

Updates & Resources

  1. Update The VRAA Can Turn the Tides on Voter Discrimination 

    Ever since the 2013 Supreme Court decision of Shelby County v. Holder, it has been far too easy for voting discrimination to occur. This troubling trend is what led the House Judiciary Committee to hold a hearing on Sept. 10 that focused on voting discrimination and a crucial piece of legislation: The Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA).

  2. Letter Faith Community Urges Congress to Promote Clean Energy  

    On Sept. 10, FCNL joined a coalition of 17 faith organizations in sending a letter to the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee. We asked members of Congress to prioritize clean energy tax incentives as they advance tax policy this year. This would be a key step to meaningfully lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

  3. Update A Repeal of the 2002 Iraq AUMF is Long Overdue 

    On Sept. 10, FCNL joined 61 other groups from across the political spectrum to urge Congress to reassert its authority over war by repealing the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). The 2002 Iraq AUMF is what allowed the U.S. to levy war against the Saddam Hussein regime. Now, 17 years after its enactment, it is long past time to put this law to rest.
