FCNL.org merges Plus Three’s cutting-edge web tools with FCNL’s half-century of peace and social justice advocacy work
Plus Three recently completed a full revamp of the Friends Committee on National Legislation’s (FCNL) web presence.

Plus Three migrated over 3,000 stories to its ARCOS platform—which provides content management, fundraising and advocacy tools, and email delivery in a single platform—and refreshed FCNL.org with a modern, strategic design that incorporates social media tools.
Jim Cason, FCNL's Associate Executive Secretary for Campaigns, explains:
"Plus Three's integrated approach to communications has helped FCNL to significantly expand our online advocacy and fundraising.
