FCL Education Fund


FCLCA’s sister organization, the FCL Education Fund, was created in 1984. The FCL Education Fund supports nonpartisan educational activities that reflect the values of Friends, including research, publications, workshops, and presentations in furtherance of social justice and informed citizen participation in state government. We believe that the people of California should be educated about the issues facing our state and have the tools and information they need to promote positive social change.

Check out the Resources section on this website for information provided by the FCL Education Fund as well as:

Our Newsletter, that brings you interviews and analysis on important California topics.
