During the fall of 2021, FCAN kicked off its first Advocacy Fellowship, working with Local College Access Networks (LCANs) to bring student voices to Tallahassee and advocating for statewide policies to reach Florida’s SAIL to 60 Initiative and achieve a Talent Strong Florida.
FCAN’s recent 2021-22 Advocacy Spotlight series highlighted the work of the LCANs that participated, as well as the real stories of the students who advocated for emergency financial aid and a universal FAFSA completion policy.
