Our Work

FCNL is much more than our lobbyists in Washington, DC. We're thousands of people across the country working for peace, justice, and sustainability. At local and national events, we bring people together for advocacy and community.

We hope you'll be able to join us for regional events and conference calls, or travel to Washington, DC for Annual Meeting and Spring Lobby Weekend.
