This year, FCNL’s practice of FIERCE LOVE means lobbying Congress for strong action to address police brutality and the militarization of law enforcement. More than ever, our community needs one another, and Congress needs to hear from you.
Theme: FIERCE LOVE
Just days after one of the most consequential elections in our history, we will gather virtually as a community to worship, learn and lobby.
The Poor People’s Campaign is asking faith communities to mobilize in solidarity with poor voters, especially in key states like Pennsylvania. Two specific initiatives—Poll Monitoring and the Prophetic Pledge—have launched in the interest of voter protection and a fair election. These present strategic opportunities for Meetings and individuals to work together to ensure that all votes are counted and no voter is intimidated or turned away at the polls.
Join AFSC Fellow Sophia Burns on Saturday, October 24th at 11AM via Zoom to learn how your Meeting can get involved.
