Greetings SAYMA Friends from your FCNL Reps! 

--Brave and Constant: FCNL’s Annual Meeting 2022 brought over 500 Friends together online and in person to lobby for environmental justice and to do its annual business. If you want to know more

--The FCNL business meeting approved legislative priorities for the 118th session of Congress.  Thank you to SAYMA monthly meetings that participated in the process! Here is a link to the priorities

--FCNL is seeking divine guidance on reproductive health care, including abortion. We are being asked to hold the concerns in the light with tenderness, care and a lot of listening. We will spread the word about opportunities to participate in discernment. 

--FCNL’s Advocacy Teams’ 2023 Campaign is changing focus. Tell your legislators, “Invest in peacebuilding!” Ask them to increase funding for State Department and USAID programs that respond to building signs of violence, prevent atrocities and create reconciliation programs after violent conflict. For more information:

--Young Adults: Join other Young Adult Friends in Washington or virtually for Spring Lobby Weekend on March 25-28th. For more information or to register:

--Lots of ways to support FCNL.  Below is a pdf which can be printed and posted in your local meeting house. 

In conclusion, FCNL continues to live into the beloved community through its work in Washington DC and its commitment to anti-racist processes.

We’re here for you - for your feedback; for your questions, 

Jane and Susan
