How learning how to clerk helped center my spirit this Advent
Prior to Advent, I spent a November weekend at Pendle Hill, the Quaker retreat center outside of Philadelphia. I wanted to learn about the Quaker decision-making and clerking process—not only to understand it better, but also to see what I could incorporate into my job at FCNL.
This Giving Tuesday, please join me—a sustainer and 2017-18 Advocacy Corps alumnus—in becoming a monthly donor. I'm supporting the FCNL Education Fund today, because its training and research directly benefits advocates like you and me.

The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) is one of a few faith-based groups that lobbies with and for Native Americans on issues affecting their communities. Through the years, FCNL has developed a credibility that enables it to provide Congress with unbiased insight and information about the issues that affect indigenous peoples in the United States.
This statement of policy embodies our convictions and provides the foundation for our work. It derives from careful discernment by Friends throughout the nation who have identified the fundamental vision that underlies our legislative actions.
