The Friends Committee on National Legislation (@FCNL) and the American Friends Service Committee (@afsc_org) partnered in live tweeting responses to the State of the Union Address on January 28th, offering a distinctly Quaker perspective on the issues President Obama raised joined by other Quaker voices who also tweeted during the speech. 

Here is a sampling of some of the most popular tweets from AFSC, FCNL, and other Quaker voices. We hope to partner on future occasions to add our Quaker voice to national dialogues. Follow us and join in the conversation in the future. - Lucy
