Washington Newsletter Race and Economic Justice 

People of color have often been excluded—explicitly or implicitly—from the paths to economic prosperity in our country. These systemic disparities are also a factor in why people of color disproportionately live in poverty, when compared to white Americans.

As a nation, we should be talking about to learn from and strengthen effective programs such as SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, not how to cut them.

Washington Newsletter Building a Just Economy 

We still have a long ways to go toward a just economy—but Congress could make the problems worse.

Washington Newsletter Washington Newsletter: Questions for Candidates 

Candidates are working to secure your vote. They’re auditioning, if you will, for the role of your representative, senator, or president. They want to convince you that they are the best candidates for the job — and that gives you opportunities to share with the candidates what matters to you. They’re listening. What are they hearing from you?

Washington Newsletter Washington Newsletter: Building Relationships with Congress 

The partnership between FCNL’s lobbyists in Washington and constituents in the district is powerful. Our staff are knowledgeable about the Washington landscape and work closely with congressional staff on Capitol Hill. But the people with the most influence on a member of Congress are their constituents.

Washington Newsletter Washington Newsletter: Native American Advocacy 

Almost every issue that Congress addresses affects Native American communities — land and natural resources; relations with other governments; and financial resources for education, health care, housing, and economic development.
