We’re starting to see that the undue influence of money in politics might be a symptom, not the disease itself. We’re thinking more broadly, and it’s opening up possibilities for action.

Background Loving Our Neighbors Now 

The election revealed our pain and brokenness as a country. With so much division, hurt, and anger, it is difficult to look for that of God in each other. What does it mean to love our neighbors now?

Update Now Is the Time: VOTE 

Now is the time to exercise a fundamental benefit of our citizenship: VOTE in this election.

Action Alert The Debate Raised the Issues. Now Congress Should Act. 

The first presidential debate touched on many of the challenges we’re facing as a country. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump gave voters an idea of how they would address issues ranging from mass incarceration to the use of nuclear weapons.

Update Question Once, Lobby Twice 

Even as the rhetoric has moved from debate over policy differences to personal attacks against individuals and whole communities, in January the next Congress and the next president will need to come together to govern the United States.

Advocacy Resource Love Thy Neighbor 

Our country is struggling with deep divisions. Amid the blame of and attack on those who are different - in political views, race, religion, country of origin, or sexual orientation - it becomes even more urgent to highlight the value we place in one another. FCNL's #LoveThyNeighbor campaign seeks to shift the narrative.
