FCLCA has an expert, experienced, hard-working team in Sacramento. I turn to them regularly for advice and help. My sense is that FCLCA is an organization strongly grounded in the core values that drive its work. California is a better place because of it.

For two years, FCLCA supported the ban the box effort which resulted in the passage and signing of AB 218—a bill that will help millions of Californians with criminal records have a fair shot at public employment. FCLCA was a key part of our broad-based coalition of over 130 groups and provided critical legislative expertise in Sacramento when it was most needed. We are grateful for Jim Lindburg’s insight and support, which helped us achieve this significant victory.

Thank you so much for the work done on SB9 and SB260. Without your efforts our son wouldn't have a second chance. Every holiday, family gathering, marriage, child born, graduation, even vacations are not fully enjoyed. There is someone missing. Seventeen years have gone painfully by. I pray for the day his debt will be paid. Thank-you for making that possible.
