Students at FCNL's Spring 2013 Lobby Day
Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) is a Quaker lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C. The CPGC and Quaker Affairs Office are sponsoring a group of students to attend FCNL’s annual conference and lobbying day on November 13th and 14th. FCNL’s programing will include preparation on how to effectively lobby, a briefing on the lobbying topic, assistance planning and executing the visits with congresspeople, and a speech by New York Times Bestselling author Reza Aslan. This year’s lobbying topic is budget reform, specifically advocating to reduce the Pentagon’s budget while reinvesting in human needs programs. This is a wonderful opportunity to get out and really make an impact on our government and their decisions on this pressing topic.
The van will leave on Wednesday, November 13th at 7 p.m. and return on Thursday, November 14th around 11:30 p.m. If you are interested, please fill out the online application at: https://docs.google.com/a/haverford.edu/forms/d/1wxoRN76Tlqh9BVHc_0KGXJgztAbSLoZ_Qys6F10WU0Q/viewform by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 28th.
