Virginia Friends at the the Capitol

We spent Thursday and Friday lobbying to protect SNAP, America’s most effective anti-hunger program, from cuts that could devastate the 40 million Americans who rely on this vital program when times are hard. Saturday and Sunday were times for worship and community. FCNL's governors met to approve members of our General Committee, set the budget, discern legislative priorities, and lay out plans for advocacy work in the next year.

Legislative Priorities for the 116th Congress 

Since the early days of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), God’s spirit has led Friends to be a prophetic witness and to take action in the world. The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) brings Friends’ spiritual values and testimonies to bear on U.S. public policy decisions.
