Choose Hope. Work for Justice.
This year’s virtual Annual Meeting and Quaker Public Policy Institute will bring together hundreds of Quakers and friends.
We’ll work to advance a more just and peaceful world, practice advocacy skills, and join in fellowship and worship. FCNL General Committee members will make critical organizational decisions to guide FCNL’s work in the years ahead.
Join us online to:
- Lobby to advance peace and justice.
- Hear from exciting and inspiring speakers—including policy experts and faith leaders—about what you can do in the year ahead.
- Worship together and be part of a community of committed people from across the country.
Quaker advocacy has never been more important. We hope you’ll be part of it this November.
Our Lobbying Focus
FCNL’s Quaker Public Policy Institute will bring together hundreds of advocates from around the country virtually as Congress makes the final decisions about how much to invest in eliminating child poverty and protecting families.
For the first time in nearly half a century, Congress is considering legislation that could permanently transform our country’s approach to supporting children and families, address climate change and, at the same time, provide a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrants.
But the push-back against this transformational policy package will continue until it is sent to the president for his signature. For this reason, participants in FCNL’s Annual Meeting and Quaker Public Policy Institute will lobby Congress (with FCNL’s support) to ensure that these new policies do not get left on the cutting room floor during the legislative process.
We’ve put together a tentative schedule for Annual Meeting and the Quaker Public Policy Institute. Please visit this page for more details.
