Mission Statement


"The Florida Consumer Action Network is a grassroots organization which empowers citizens to influence public policy by organizing and educating in areas where consumer voices are underrepresented."




FCAN is the premier Florida organization for promoting and achieving a more democratic and just Florida. We are the organization other groups choose to work with on critical statewide and national initiatives. We have substantial capital in the state executive and legislative bodies and in other activist entities. Our board is highly diverse, reflecting the underserved populations mentioned in our mission and our goals. We are helping Florida become a model for the nation in the way we address economic, political, social and environmental justice.  We have a mastery of communication and web technology, using it to effectively communicate and mobilize.

We also have the infrastructure to support and expand our grassroots system, one effective at generating revenue, defining constituent issues, crafting a message and mobilizing citizens.  Our actions provide the foundation and stability to mount and coordinate issue campaigns, to register voters and get out the vote, and to win elections.  Our Florida regional boards stay abreast of local issues, help to raise funds, and keep local members involved, informed, passionate and active.  We periodically evaluate our goals, strategic plan, and our board and staff makeup in order to stay effective.

FCAN remains engaged for the common good, advancing community, compassion, democracy, justice, freedom and opportunity.  We remain in harmony with USAction, its affiliates and similar national organizations.
