Spring Lobby Weekend

Each year more than 400 students, recent grads, Quakers, and young adults gather to learn and lobby Congress at FCNL’s Spring Lobby Weekend.

The success of our democracy rests on the individual actions of millions of citizen advocates who both trust and verify that our democratic institutions function. But to participate effectively, we all have to know how the system works and how to engage with members of Congress.

Summer Internship

FCNL’s summer internship experience is ideal for people ages 18-23, but some older participants have found it to be meaningful as well. Experiences vary depending on what projects are going on at the FCNL office. Participants should arrive expecting to engage in a variety of tasks.
