Our Work

FCNL’s advocacy is rooted in the strength and passion of Friends. From our priorities-setting process to our encouragement of Friends to embrace their change-making power, Quaker worship and grounding lies at the heart of our work.

  1. Advocacy Resource Five Ways Forward for Friends 

    Here are resources you can use guide and amplify your work as Quaker advocates. Join a community of Friends nationwide working for peace and justice.

  2. Advocacy Resource Meeting Minutes as Advocacy Tools 

    In Quaker meetings and churches, meeting minutes represent the wording of a decision or an agreed upon action to be taken by the meeting or church as a whole. FCNL recognizes the vitality of minutes as advocacy tools and as a means of communicating to members of Congress how a body of their constituents is thinking and acting on a particular issue.

  3. Work with FCNL Visiting Friends 

    When Faith and Witness Find Feet

    FCNL Visiting Friends engage with nearby meetings and churches, sharing how Quaker advocacy and FCNL can help Friends live out their own faith through action. As a Visiting Friend, you will invite Friends to take spirit-led action in meaningful and effective ways, and connect Friends with opportunities to witness for the World We Seek.

Action Alert Finding God Everywhere, Taking Care of Everyone  

Join me in submitting a comment to protect SNAP.

As Friends, we open ourselves through prayer to experiencing the presence of God—in the blades of grass, the clouds, and in one another. This practice of opening to experience the ordinary as holy is what drew me to worship among Friends. It leads me to a practice where I am exhorted to treat all others as God-ly.
