A Quaker Lobby in the Public Interest
For more a decade, FCNL has advocated for improved U.S.-Iran relations. Our priority is to see the U.S. government engage in the diplomacy that will help bring Iran back into the fold of the international community and prevent the country from acquiring nuclear weapons.
A huge vote on war and peace is right around the corner. Today, world powers announced a deal over Iran's nuclear program -- and now Congress will weigh in.
FCNL welcomes the historic breakthrough between six powers and Iran, and calls on Congress to support this accord, which guards against another nuclear-armed nation and war in the Middle East.
A timeline of congressional action of a prospective nuclear deal with Iran.
Col. Lawrence Wilkerson and FCNL's Kate Gould write: "The Iran deal reached in Vienna is a historic victory. Exquisite diplomacy has delivered Washington and Tehran from years of teetering on the brink of war to one of the greatest diplomatic achievements of the nuclear age."

FCNL Statement of Legislative Policy
"We support active non-violent responses to prevent or transform violent conflict at all levels.
The cycles of violence perpetuated by acts of terror and the armed overthrow of governments serve as warning against the use of force, while the examples of nonviolent movements for change provide concrete alternatives.”
