Membership in FAC is FREE. We are a non-profit organization that runs 100% on volunteers and donations. No one in the organization is paid for their services, including many active members and directors that work around the clock to bring you news, answer emails, write letters, return phone calls, and network with other organizations on your behalf to ensure persons with past offenses are not being excluded from programs and opportunities. We suggest a donation of $60/year or $5/month if you can help with the operating costs. We suggest a donation to support Legal challenges in any amount you can afford. No one will be turned away from membership for their to inability to make a donation. If you are not already a member of FAC, please join at https://floridaactioncommittee.org/become-a-member/ and you may select “Mail Check” if you are not ready to make a donation today.
