Our Campaign in 2020: End Endless War
For the better part of two decades, Congress has ceded war powers to the executive. Congress must take back its authority by holding debates and votes every time the U.S. considers war. As a Quaker organization, we hold firm to our faith that war is not the answer.
Tensions with Iran have escalated and Congress has failed to act to explicitly reject war and insist on diplomacy. That's why this election year, Advocacy Teams will build on our past work to end endless wars. We will focus on persuading Congress to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen and affirmatively state that Congress explicitly prohibits a war of choice with Iran.
Meeting face to face with your members of Congress is the single most effective way to persuade them to support an issue you care about. Use these resources to meet directly with your members of Congress.
Updates from Advocacy Teams
Working with the media is an effective way to advocate; members of Congress pay close attention to their local media -- especially when they're mentioned by name.
Numbers make a difference, and legislators will be more inclined to vote your way if they feel there is a groundswell of support behind your position. You can create that wave through community education.
As a member of the Advocacy Teams network, you are an extension of FCNL’s work both in Congress and at home. When each person follows these guidelines, it strengthens the recognition of your work and helps you create professional-looking material. Here are some materials to get you started.
