The Election and Our Work

By Jim Cason, Amelia Kegan, November 16, 2016


What do the results of the election mean for FCNL's work in the days, months, and year ahead?

In a conference call with FCNL supporters on November 16, Legislative Directors Jim Cason and Amelia Kegan discussed this question.

They also responded to questions from participants, including:

  • What can we do as individuals to influence the Trump White House?
  • Help us prioritize! There is so much to address!
  • What are the most effective ways we can take action to protect access to healthcare and the rights and dignity of immigrants and Muslims during the incoming administration?

Listen to a recording of the call.

Address to Annual Meeting 2016

For many of us, this hasn’t been just a hard few days, it’s been a hard 18 months. And the election results left us in disbelief. Shaken. But our faith is not one of despair. It is of hope.
