About

Friends Committee on National Legislation needs all Friends to lift their faithful witness before Congress.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) seeks to increase military spending to around $700 billion—around a $70 billion jump from current spending and it looks like these increased could be at the expense of safety net programs like Medicaid, Medicare and SNAP to name a few. Once these cuts are made, we will be hard pressed to recover these funds, ever.

We know our numbers and the way we witness before Congress makes an indelible impact. Join FCNL for training and a day of lobbying.

Funds are available to encourage New England Friends to attend. For more details, see the attached flyer.
