WHY SUPPORT FAC?
FAC’s vision is a California in which the rights promised by the First Amendment are available and enforced for everyone, irrespective of wealth, politics or access to power. And every day, FAC’s team of First Amendment experts fight for these protections and for government transparency on multiple fronts, bringing our 35 years of experience to bear by using our model of integrated advocacy—litigation, public education, and policy advocacy—to attack violations of our core rights at the local, state, and federal levels.
Nonpartisan and nonproﬁt, FAC believes that the broadest range of engaged and informed communities is essential to the health of our democracy — that the values expressed by the First Amendment provide a blueprint for an inclusive, equitable society and a responsive, accountable government.
