A Quaker Lobby in the Public Interest
The U.S. reports “real and substantial progress” toward a long-term agreement that would guard against a nuclear-armed Iran and another war. Negotiators are working hard to secure a framework agreement by March. But, some in Congress are calling for more sanctions now that could jeopardize the talks. Write a letter to the editor asking your members of Congress to oppose new sanctions.

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.”
