The Vanishing Quaker

Friends Committee on National Legislation Resources

FCNL is the Quaker lobbying arm, and has been presenting our social, peace, and environmental conerns to Congress for over 60 years.

Our lobbying started long before that, of course, and goes back to the week of George Washington's inauguration when a group of Quakers went to visit him to press for the end of slavery.

FCNL's Iraq page has "Eight Tips for a Successful Lobby Visit," an excellent summary of how best to approach your own Congresscritters with your concerns.

It also has a place for your church or group to endorse the STEP resolution. A large group from Catholics to Mennonites to Methodists has already publicly endorsed this resolution, and more are welcome.
