We seek a world free of war and the threat of war
We seek a society with equity and justice for all
We seek a community where every person's potential may be fulfilled
We seek an earth restored...
Friends are called, individually and as Meetings, to change the oppressive parts of societies and governments to which they belong. In the words of William Penn, "True religion does not draw men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it and excites their endeavors to mend it."
We provide these resources to assist you in this process.

Rather than continue maintaining the contact information for elected officials on this page, I recommend this link as a source, not only of addresses and phone numbers, but lots of additional information. Click on the icon and browse their resources.
Project Vote Smart maintains a database of up-to-date Contact Information for the Senate and Congress, including a search engine that will list the representative from your district using your zip code. The Candidates and Elected Officials page contains a wealth of information including Biographies, Campaign Finances, Issue Positions, Performance Evaluations, and Voting Records.
The front of your telephone directory also has a map of congressional, senate, and assembly districts for this area.
