  1. Press Release Quaker Lobby Calls on Congress to End Illegal U.S. War in Yemen  

    Washington, DC – The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) welcomed the Pentagon’s decision late last week to stop mid-air refueling of Saudi-led coalition aircraft bombing Yemen. It also called on Congress to pass legislation ending all forms of U.S. military support for the Saudi-led coalition and to press Saudi Arabia and its allies to immediately end the war in Yemen.

  2. Update Everyday Prophets Still Needed 

    The elections are over. The new 116th Congress will start on Jan. 3, 2019 with no single party controlling all the levers of power.

  3. How Many More Tragic Acts of Gun Violence Will It Take?  

    On October 27 we watched another horrendous mass shooting take place, as 11 people were slain and several others were injured in a shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. This anti-Semitic act of violence has no place in our communities or country. We stand in solidarity with our Jewish neighbors and friends against this hatred.
