Bridget Moix to lead Quaker lobbying group

Bridget Moix has been named the next general secretary of the Friends Com­mittee on National Legislation, a Quak­er organization that lobbies Con­gress on issues of peace, justice, and environmental stewardship.

She succeeds Diane Randall, who announced in June her intention to leave the FCNL after ten years.

Most of Moix’s career has been spent doing peacebuilding work. She comes to the FCNL from Peace Direct, an organization dedicated to nonviolence and local action, where she served as executive director of the US office. Prior to that, Moix worked at the USAID Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation, the Quaker United Nations Office, and Oxfam America.
