WHY?
Proceeds support the Friends Committee on Legislation in California (FCLCA), a non-profit "lobby of conscience" started by Quakers in 1952 to increase compassion and social justice to State government.  FCLCA policies are based on the Quaker belief of  'that of God' in every person, and that each is endowed with worth and dignity regardless of social standing, ethnic or religious background.   FCLCA reminds lawmakers of the common good, that there is a 'we' beyond the 'me'.    Learn more at http://www.fclca.org
