As a Quaker witness on Capitol Hill, Friends Place is steeped in the history of its predecessor, William Penn House. Since 1966, it has opened its doors to host people participating in events like the Vietnam War protests, the Poor People’s Campaign, the Anti-Nuclear Movement, Occupy Wallstreet, and the Sunrise Movement. The beloved house also provided hospitality to scores of groups visiting Congress to lobby their lawmakers.
