Our Work

As a nation, we have the resources and imagination to make a valuable contribution to the survival of the planet and the well-being of the world's people. But for too long, our country has invested in an enormous military, shaping a world based on war and the threat of war and denying people in our communities the health, education and environmental security they need to thrive.

WANTED: A Budget that Supports our Troops

WANTED: A Budget that Supports our Troops

Spending Speaks Louder than Words

Budgets send messages about what’s important to us. The federal budget that the Congress passed sends a strong and disappointing message about who we are as a people: “We are afraid, and we don’t take care of our own. “

FCNL Statement of Legislative Policy

"Militarization has permeated our society, skewing our national budget toward support for the military and its attendant industries and forcing our local economies increasingly to depend on them. Although national security is widely perceived to depend on military strength, more weapons do not provide more security. Military expansion provokes fear, resentment and potential retaliation."
