Setting Legislative Priorities

116th Congress (2019-2020)

FCNL is asking Friends from across the U.S. to help set our legislative priorities for the 116th Congress.

A distinctive feature of the Friends Committee on National Legislation is our practice of asking Quakers around the country to help shape our work.

As we do every two years, FCNL is asking Friends and their meetings, churches, and other groups all over the country to share which of the many public policy issues and questions identified in FCNL’s Policy Statement, “The World We Seek,” they think are most important. What needs close attention from Friends, and from FCNL? Your answers to this question are the foundation for the lobbying priorities that FCNL will set at its Annual Meeting in November of 2018.

Please share the outcome of your discernment around FCNL’s lobbying priorities no later than April 13, 2018. (Online response form will be active on January 1, 2018)

At our Annual Meeting in November, the General Committee (FCNL governing board) will consider the draft and approve new priorities to guide FCNL's work in 2019 and 2020, for the 116th Congress.
