Advocacy Resource Love Thy Neighbor 

No Exceptions

Our country is struggling with deep divisions. Amid the blame of and attack on those who are different - in political views, race, religion, country of origin, or sexual orientation - it becomes even more urgent to highlight the value we place in one another. FCNL's #LoveThyNeighbor (No Exceptions) campaign seeks to shift the narrative.

Advocacy Resource Meeting Minutes as Advocacy Tools 

In Quaker meetings and churches, meeting minutes represent the wording of a decision or an agreed upon action to be taken by the meeting or church as a whole. FCNL recognizes the vitality of minutes as advocacy tools and as a means of communicating to members of Congress how a body of their constituents is thinking and acting on a particular issue.
