Take Action

Serving as an independent voice for DC children and youth is important work – work that we cannot do alone. We depend on partnerships with diverse groups of advocates, legislators, government leaders and other committed partners so that we can improve outcomes for all children across the District.

How can you take action to improve the lives of DC children and youth? Consider learning more about your neighborhood by exploring our data tool 2.0, contacting DC Councilmembers, making a donation, or signing up for our newsletter.

Together, we can create opportunities for over 120,000 DC children and youth!

Resources and well-being vary in DC. Explore neighborhood level data on our interactive data tool featuring education, health and safety indicators.

The DC Council works to improve well-being for all District residents – and this includes children and youth. Contact Councilmembers to advocate on behalf of DC children and youth on critical issues you care about!

We're looking for partners who want to invest in the future by supporting DC children and the neighborhoods where they live, learn and play. 


25 years ago, our founding mothers made a difference by creating an organization to speak out for all children and families in the District.

Today, we continue this legacy as the leading voice for DC children and families. When you invest in DC Action, you invest in the future of DC and its children.
