News from Friends Committee on North Carolina Legislation (FCNCL).
We have a new workshop coming on April 29, so save the date. Offered jointly with staff from Friends Committee on National Legislation, we’ll update you on criminal justice reform legislation.
Materials from our last workshop on how to build relationships with your NC legislators are on our website: FCNCL.org. Those materials are intended to make it easier for you to bring Quaker values to bear on NC legislation. We want to help you feel confident about advocating and educating your legislators. We also want to Alert you when we see a moment when speaking up will be most impactful.
Check out our most recent Action Alert about regulating “forever chemicals” in NC groundwater; see all our past alerts; and sign up to receive Alerts HERE. If you’re on Facebook, please, LIKE us and request to join our Facebook Group: Friends of FCNCL for Advocacy, where we can converse.
New projects: we’re grouping our participants by legislative districts, so you can team with others for lobby visits; and we’re reaching out to our General Committee members to get feedback and ideas.
