- We Moved! FCAN relocated to a new office in St. Petersburg in the Grand Central District.
3110 1st Ave N Suite M
St Petersburg, FL 33713
Our phone number is still 813-877-6712 and emails all remain the same. However, we will soon have a 727 phone number as well.
Why did we move? FCAN joined the Fair Share Alliance and we wanted to share office space with our new partners, Environment Florida and, Florida PIRG. This saves money for all the groups. Besides, we have a clean, bright new space with plenty of room in a very cool area of St Pete.
And there’s lots of political action in Pinellas County that we want to be more a part of. At last count, FCAN has more members in Pinellas than any other county. More news, we expect to expand our field canvassing efforts later this summer, also a part of our work with the Fair Share Alliance.

- FCAN/NAACP Oppose SNAP Cuts (PDF) (FCAN) is deeply disappointed that the U.S. House voted to support a stunningly harsh proposal to cut off food assistance for nearly 4 million of the most vulnerable Floridians — the poorest of the poor, children, seniors and even veterans. We are even more disappointed that US Representative Bill Young would vote to cut those services to about 3,000 people living in his district.

Fair Taxes: It’s time the top 2% paid their fair share. Ending the Bush income tax cuts for incomes above $250,000 would raise tax rates for 2% of the wealthiest to the same levels as in the Clinton administration and raise $1 trillion over ten years. That’s almost as much as all the automatic spending cuts. Find our more.
