February FCNL Report

The SC Advocacy group call with FCNL this week discussed the emphasis this year to
support the USAID budgets for a variety of efforts through the appropriation process:  

  1.  Peace building programs to prevent and reduce violent conflict
  2.  Reconciliation programs between different ethnic, racial, religious or political groups
    in areas of civil trouble and war.
  3.  Preventing mass atrocities and genocide.
  4.  Complex crises fund to provide immediate short term funding quickly during an
    emergent crisis.

Efforts are underway to meet by zoom with Rep Nancy Mace.  At that time a member of
the advocacy group will present concerns related to the impact of Israeli violence
against Palestinians.
