Ruth Flower came to Quakerism and lobbying at virtually the same time because of a sense of justice and respect for people. She began lobbying as a volunteer with the Friends Committee on Legislation in California and came to Washington in the early 1980s to advocate for military spending cuts and investment in domestic programs.
FCNL's multi-issue advocacy connects Quaker testimonies with legislation in the U.S. Congress and the administration.
FCNL has moved to telework!
The FCNL offices are temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. We are lobbying online and by phone for the world we seek. Your engagement with Congress at this time is essential! Join us and become a monthly donor.
