The Friends Committee on National Legislation is one of the most widely respected advocacy groups in Washington, D.C. It embodies the Quaker tradition of witnessing Spirit through action.
Over its 80 years, FCNL has changed leadership only five times. In 2022, Dr. Bridget Moix became its newest General Secretary, and we are delighted to bring her to Philadelphia.
FCNL describes the “World we seek: as a world free from war, a society with equity and justice for all, a community where every person’s potential may be fulfilled, and an earth restored.” We look forward to being inspired by Dr. Moix’s spirit-led vision for FCNL.
Bridget Moix has spent 25 years working on international peace and conflict issues, with a focus on US foreign policy. She was US Executive Director of Peace Direct and is an experienced non-profit executive and teacher. She has taught courses in peacebuilding, conflict resolution, and Quaker studies at Haverford College, Columbia University, George Washington University, American University, and Eastern Mennonite University. She holds a Ph.D. from George Mason University’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution. She is author of “Choosing Peace: Agency and Action in the Midst of War” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019). Bridget lives in Washington, D.C., with her two sons who nurture and challenge her peacebuilding skills every day. As a convinced Quaker, she is a member of Friends Meeting of Washington, Baltimore Yearly Meeting, and attends Mexico City Monthly Meeting (virtually).
