The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) fields the largest team of registered peace lobbyists in Washington, DC. Founded in 1943 by members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), FCNL's multi-issue advocacy connects historic Quaker testimonies on peace, equality, simplicity, and truth with peace and social justice issues which the United States government is or should be addressing. FCNL is nonpartisan.
FCNL currently lobbies on peace issues, the peaceful prevention of deadly conflict, nuclear disarmament, immigration, Native American issues, environment, and federal budget priorities.
