Who are Friends For Civil Action? Friends For Civil Action believe inclusive policies are the right policies for community life, public safety, the economy, and the human spirit. We are an informal network–without dues or infra-structure–of friends and neighbors branching to many neighborhoods across the country. As we present our goals to elected officials, we do so with civility, avoiding name calling. We focus on issues that are vital to community well-being. We are residents of our neighborhoods and of the world.
