What's Ahead in 2018 for Congress
Conference Call: January 23, 8 p.m. Eastern
What does the government shutdown and reopening mean for efforts to protect immigrants, help the most vulnerable people in our country, and advance peace and justice this year? How can the FCNL network act for policy change?
1. Contact Congress about post-shutdown priorities
With even more budget and spending conversations coming up in the next few weeks, and a looming February 8 deadline to keep the government open, your members of Congress need to hear about the urgent challenges facing our country.
2. Share your immigration story
Thousands of Dreamers have already lost their authorization to live and work in the U.S., and many thousands more will be at risk of detention or deportation. Congress needs to hear why immigrants make America stronger.
3. Write a letter to the editor about North Korea
The Winter Olympics are one of the first promising signs of diplomatic openings with North Korea. Write a letter to the editor calling for sustained, intensive diplomacy with North Korea to avert the threat of a nuclear war.
4. Join or start an FCNL Advocacy Team
Advocacy Teams build relationships with their members of Congress, fostering champions for peace and justice. This year, Advocacy Teams are working to prevent war with North Korea.
