FCNL is a nonpartisan organization that seeks to live our values of integrity, simplicity, and peace as we build relationships across political divides to move policies forward.
The Associate General Secretary (AGS) for Policy and Advocacy is responsible for integrating and growing all aspects of FCNL’s lobbying by staff and volunteers in Washington and around the country.
We seek a consultant who can help develop a strategic planning process document (Phase One). If successful, this consultant would be a solid candidate to guide the FCNL community through its creation of FCNL’s 2024-2028 Strategic Plan (Phase Two).
The Friends Committee on National Legislation seeks an individual with strong data-analytic skills to track the expansion of our lobbying across multiple initiatives, organize the scheduling of training and lobbying for two major events, and develop tools to move digital advocates into off-line lobbying.
Diversity and Inclusion
In keeping with the Quaker testimony of equality, we strive to be an organization that welcomes, values and respects the different perspectives of every individual.
The Advocacy Teams Network is made up of more than 1,500 Quakers and friends from across the county who use their power as constituents to make change in Washington.
FCNL has long benefited from the dedicated service of Friends who volunteer in our Washington, D.C. office for a focused period of time.
FCNL’s grassroots network includes hundreds of Quaker meetings and churches around the country. As an FCNL Contact, you’ll receive monthly updates on important actions.
FCNL Visiting Friends engage with nearby meetings and churches virtually or in-person, sharing how Quaker advocacy and FCNL can help Friends live out their own faith through works and witness.
Native American Advocacy Program
For decades, FCNL’s Native American Advocacy Program has been an enduring ally to national Native American organizations and Indian communities engaged in policy advocacy. The congressional advocate on Native American policy manages the program.
