Below is a statement of their aims and an extract from their annual calendar that highlights many of the actvities of interest to those who are like-minded.

The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) is a public interest lobby founded in 1943 by members of the Religious Society of Friends.  FCNL seeks to bring the concerns, experiences and testimonies of Friends (called Quakers) to bear on policy decisions in the nation's capital.  People of many religious backgrounds participate in this work.  FCNL’s staff and volunteers work with a nationwide network of thousands of people to advocate social and economic justice, peace, and good government.
