On the 1st Day of Christmas, FCNL gave to thee:
A Senate vote to end the war in Afghanistan.
In December, the Senate for the first time passed legislation supporting an end to the war. Speaking after the vote, lead sponsor Senator Jeff Merkley (OR) credited FCNL and several of our allies for leading a "smart, engaged, fierce grassroots effort" to see this amendment passed. The provision didn't become law but demonstrates growing bipartisan support in Congress for a responsible U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
We can't engage in the kinds of "fierce grassroots efforts" that pressed the Senate to vote for a withdrawal from Afghanistan without your financial help. Donate and help us realize our vision of a world without war.
