Updates & Resources

  1. Update A look back: Virtual Spring Lobby Weekend 2020! 

    Hundreds of young advocates from all around the U.S. brought a clear and compelling message to Congress: now is the time to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate the damage already being done by climate change, and protect vulnerable communities by passing carbon pricing legislation.

  2. Washington Newsletter Washington Newsletter: The Climate Crisis Is a Human Crisis 

    At no time since we first celebrated Earth Day 50 years ago have we experienced such an environmental crisis as today. Climate change and the depletion of the Earth’s ecosystems are having a devastating impact on us all. Last year, we ended the hottest decade and second hottest year in modern history.

  3. Event “The Future of Quakers” with Marge Abbott and Liz Nicholson 

    April 15 at 6:30-7:30 p.m. EDT | Online

    What gifts do we Quakers have to share with others in these harrowing times of injustice? How do we practice listening and attending to the Spirit within? In this conversation, we will discuss how everyday Friends are opening to the Spirit, deepening their connection to prophetic vision, and rekindling our history of radical witness in these times of unease, injustice and inequity.

  4. FCNL is Still Open for Business

    Our offices are temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we are still working online and by phone for the world we seek. Your advocacy and support remain essential.
