  1. I am a Quaker serving in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, a body known for its sheer size (400!) I of course watched with great interest to the video of Lon Burnam. Does anyone know how many Quaker state legislators we have? I would like to suggest a way to get in touch with one another.

  2. I never expected to hear about a Quaker Congressman from Texas. What a great voice to have on the hill and now at FCNL. I was inspired by his story and words.

  3. We have a state Senator Diane Allen who is a member of Moorestown Monthly Meeting in NJ. Very effective and outspoken.
