Franklin Community Advocates (FCA) is proud to advocate for the people of Franklin, WI and our neighboring, impacted communities.
What does advocacy mean and how does it differ from lobbying? Advocacy, as defined by Alliance for Justice:
“While all lobbying is advocacy, not all advocacy is lobbying. Advocacy is any action that speaks in favor of, recommends, argues for a cause, supports or defends, or pleads on behalf of others. It includes public education, regulatory work, litigation, and work before administrative bodies, lobbying, nonpartisan voter registration, nonpartisan voter education, and more.”
In short, advocating for your mission encompasses just about every form of communications a nonprofit can do. Lobbying, on the other hand, is very narrow.

Our mission is to bring about ethical practices, fair decision making and transparency to our community. Today our fight is about Strauss Brands, LLC’s proposed expansion in the front and backyards of our residents. Tomorrow our fight will be about something else.
Won’t you join us in our cause to advocate for an ethical and transparent community?
