Welcome to IFCL
IFCL seeks to express the spirit of Christ and to relate our Christian Faith and Quaker Testimonies to the shaping of responsible decisions by our state Government.
Our purpose is to develop those conditions which allow for the working of the Holy Spirit.
We strive to express our social concerns through personal visits to and correspondence with Indiana legislators, as well as through testimony before legislative committees.We also believe we can be most effective through empowering individual Quakers and Friends Meetings to more capably share their concerns with legislators.
Statement on Peaceful Protest
Indiana Friends Committee on Legislation champions nonviolent actions that advocate for equal opportunity and justice for people in our communities near and far. Like generations of Quakers before us, we work to strengthen relations with courage and kindness between all individuals, organizations and governments.

Who are Quakers?
Friends live by the conviction that there is that of God in every person. We have a concern for the poor and less privileged and believe in the necessity of speaking truth to power.
