Community Lobby Day

Sign up 


Lobbyists aren't just professionals on Capitol Hill. Working with FCNL, hundreds of people are building relationships — and influence — with their members of Congress. Get involved with FCNL's advocacy programs for supportive coaching and networks of fellow advocates. Or use these resources to get started in advocacy.


  1. Advocacy Resource How to Lobby Congress 

    Meeting face to face with your members of Congress is the single most effective way to persuade them to support an issue you care about. These meetings let them know that their constituents are paying attention.

  2. Work with FCNL Advocacy Teams 

    Advocacy Teams are Quakers and friends from across the country who use their power as constituents to build meaningful relationships with their members of Congress.

  3. Work with FCNL Advocacy Corps 

    As an Advocacy Corps organizer, you'll connect local activists and leaders with your members of Congress to affect big, long-term change. You'll also learn critical organizing skills and put them into practice with hands-on leadership experience.

  4. Event Spring Lobby Weekend 

    For the first time in a generation, we have an opportunity to enact concrete policies that would begin to construct an economic system that benefits all.
