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.

FCNL in the News A Call to #LOVETHYNEIGHBOR (No Exceptions) 

"The Friends Committee on National Legislation has a long history of speaking truth to power, and it continues to do so with what may well be the savviest and strongest response to all the threats posed by Donald Trump’s presidency."

The #LoveThyNeighbor campaign is a conscious effort to “shift the narrative.” It challenges policymakers and voters to think about the moral implications of the actions they are taking on questions of war and peace, inequality and intolerance — at home and abroad. Ultimately, it seeks to bring people of different parties and different ideologies together to work for peace, economic and social justice, and environmental sustainability.
