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.

No war is justified.
