Quakers Give Award to Sen. Dick Durbin

The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL), a Quaker lobby in Washington, D.C. gave their Edward F. Snyder Award to Senator Richard Durbin at their annual meeting in November 2015. 
Sen Durbin was recognized for " successfully organizing Senate support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to peacefully resolve the dispute over Iran's nuclear program; leading the effort to increase U.S. humanitarian and resettlement support for Syrian refugees; and advancing criminal justice reform through bipartisan action."  

Northside Friends Meeting sent a congratulary letter to Sen. Durbin.  We are proud and grateful for our Senator who is working on behalf of peace and humanitarian need.

Northside Friends Meeting is an active and diverse community of worship that meets each week in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. Our members come from the immediate neighborhood and from as far away as Hyde Park and Oak Park. We view the Friends Committee on National Legislation as our voice for peace and justice in the nation’s capital.
