At FCNL, we are committed to growing our lobbying power, both here on Capitol Hill and across the country. One of the most effective ways to do that is by building power among the present and future leaders of movements for peace and justice: young adults. We're committed to providing training, resources, and programs that meet your needs.

Am I welcome at FCNL?

Yes! All of our programs and events are open to young people of any background or identity. We are actively seeking people from diverse backgrounds, including in terms of race or ethnicity, economic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and political affiliation. FCNL is a Quaker organization; we work with a moral framework and collaborate with people from a faith perspective. However, you do not need to be religious to participate. We encourage Quakers and people of other (or no) faiths to join us.

Work with FCNL Statement of Diversity and Inclusion 

At FCNL, we embrace having a multitude of voices and talents working together to strengthen our impact in the world. 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.
