About us

Welcome to Washington Memo, the blog of Mennonite Central Committee U.S. Washington Office!

Our office is part of Mennonite Central Committee U.S., working as a Mennonite and Brethren in Christ presence on Capitol Hill. By being in touch with MCC staff around the world, we can better advocate for U.S. government policies that make for a more peaceful and just world.

We hope this blog would keep you updated with our legislative and advocacy work. Your voices are critical in this process, so join us today!
