Setting Legislative Priorities: Deadline Extended to May 1, 2020

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.

Input is due to FCNL by May 1, 2020.

Setting Priorities for the 117th Congress

Where are Friends called to focus their congressional advocacy work in 2021 and 2022?


Deadline Extended: May 1, 2020

Given the crisis surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Policy Committee has extended the deadline for receiving your discernment of FCNL’s legislative priorities until May 1, 2020. We know Friends are already developing ways to worship virtually and we want to invite Friends to consider also how they might discern FCNL’s legislative priorities in a virtual setting.

Our Quaker Field Secretary Christine Ashley is working with Friends across the country to support their virtual discernment of FCNL’s Legislative Priorities and would be happy to be in touch with you to support your meeting. If your meeting would like to reserve a virtual space for worshipful discernment with FCNL please fill out this this form, and Christine will be in touch with you directly to arrange a time.
