Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection consists of administrative, legal and fiscal records including articles of incorporation and by-laws, meeting minutes from committees and regional branches, and research files relative to lobbying efforts including the death penalty and prison reform. In addition, it includes other information collected by the organization on the issues they address agriculture, death penalty, prison reform, violence prevention, and other programs.
The Friends Committee on Legislation (FCL) was founded in 1952 by members guided by Quaker values to advocate California state laws and issues involving peace and social justice. These include civil rights, criminal and economic justice, prison reform, housing, health care, education and other services for those who are lower income and lack a strong voice to represent their interests. They are also involved in Project Vote Smart which gives information on candidates, officials, and legislation where the FCL include their own ratings on these and endorsements of officials.
