About Friends Committee on National Legislation

The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) is a nonprofit Quaker-affiliated advocacy and lobbying organization. The FCNL is committed to social and economic justice, conflict resolution and civil rights. In recent years, the committee has worked to ban nuclear weapons and land mines, stop the war in Iraq, promote civil liberties in the United States and advocate for Native American people in the United States.

Interns work as full-time members of the FCNL staff, gaining a thorough understanding of the relevant issues, as well as the governmental process. They will attend committee hearings, examine government reports, write background briefs and coordinate with FCNL members and other grassroots activists. Interns will have the opportunity to work closely with experienced FCNL lobbyists and communications and field program staff.


Open to all college graduates and graduate students. Applicants without a college degree but with equivalent experience will also be considered.
