Advocacy for an Earth Restored

As our nation confronts growing  rates of asthma, 100-year floods, sweeping wildfires, and water that is poisoning our children, Congress has a historic opportunity to respond to the needs of communities most impacted by climate change.

In November 2022, we raise our collective voices to urge Congress to increase funding directed toward environmental justice programs.

Preliminary Schedule

Wednesday, November 16-Thursday, November 17: Arrive or join by late afternoon (EDT) on Wednesday for lobby training and programming. Lobbying for in-person attendees will take place Thursday, focused on environmental justice legislation. 

Annual Meeting

Thursday, November 17-Sunday, November 20: The General Committee will begin considering FCNL business Thursday evening and continue through early Sunday afternoon. The gathering will also include time in large and small group worship, conversations with FCNL staff, and workshops to build skills and engage deeply with our community. Plenary speakers will be announced over the summer.

About the Event

At FCNL’s Annual Meeting, Friends from across the country join in fellowship and worship as we seek unity on important matters that affect us all. FCNL’s General Committee makes decisions that guide the organization’s approach and policies moving forward. Through the Quaker Public Policy Institute, hundreds of advocates lobby their federal officials to advance just public policies.
