Setting Legislative Priorities

117th Congress (2021-2022)


FCNL is asking Friends from across the U.S. to help set our legislative priorities for the 117th 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 has asked 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 2020.

Update FCNL’s Priorities Process Builds Community and Drive to Act Among Friends 

The COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t stop thousands of Quakers from conducting business with FCNL this March and April. 215 Meetings and Churches, as well as Yearly and Quarterly Meetings, chose to center their first virtual meetings for business on discerning FCNL’s legislative priorities for the 117th Congress.
