The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) urges the immediate removal of President Donald Trump due to his inability to carry out his responsibilities, and the clear and present danger of his continuation as U.S. President.
We are appalled by the violence shown by demonstrators who stormed the U.S. Capitol today.
The people have spoken through the ballot box. The efforts of some Republican members of Congress to undermine certified state election results is a shameless attempt to subvert the will of the majority in a fair election. The people have overwhelmingly elected Joe Biden as president, not only by popular vote but through the Electoral College.
Our FCNL community grieves the loss of Tommy Raskin and we are holding his family, and the wider community he loved and continues to inspire, in the Light. Tommy passed away at the end of December 2020.

FCNL opposes the administration’s efforts to reimpose UN sanctions on Iran and to undermine and formally kill the Iran nuclear deal.
