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.
