Statement The Only America We Know Is an America at War 

As young adults, we only faintly remember what life was like before Sept. 11, if we remember at all. Since the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, we have made it through elementary, middle, and high school.

FCNL in the News My story is not unique. But it should be 

When I was 14, I lost a close friend to a gun. Shortly after that, in her own home, my mother was held at gunpoint.

Update Cultivating Young Social Justice Advocates 

Returning from the 10-day Washington Summer Intensive, FCNL’s 20 Advocacy Corps organizers knew they would be faced with the difficult task of advocating for legislation to end gun violence. But they didn’t know that within days the issue would tragically return to the front pages after a terrible round of mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

Update World Quaker Day: Restoring the Earth and Growing Friends' Witness 

Celebrating World Quaker Day at FCNL

As we celebrate the sixth annual World Quaker Day on Oct. 6, I am pondering how we can sustain ourselves in the work of long-term witness. As a newly convinced Friend and Young Fellow at FCNL, I see lifting up community and togetherness as one way forward in sustaining Quaker faith and practice.
