Working Toward the World We Seek
FCNL’s strategic lobbying gets results. From the creation of the Peace Corps and passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and passage of legislation to prevent atrocities FCNL has been pivotal to some of our country’s landmark legislation. Our power stems from the integrity of our positions, our effective lobbying in Washington, and our committed grassroots network.
In the last five years, our grassroots network of lobbyists around the country has more than doubled in size, expanded its reach to all fifty states and mobilized thousands of people to build meaningful relationships with members of Congress and their staff.
These volunteer advocates around the country, from many different Faiths and communities, work closely with FCNL’s a team of professional lobbyists in Washington to change federal policy on the priorities set by Friends. On Capitol Hill, we field a team of more than a dozen professional lobbyists who deep knowledge of Congress and connections built up over decades of experience helps identify specific advocacy priorities that can help change federal policy toward priorities set by our Quaker governors.
The expertise of our professional lobbyists is increasingly sought by journalists and congressional offices. We are deepening our capacity to make change.
