ABOUT DC ACTION FOR CHILDREN
We're shaping fair and equitable public policy so that all of DC's children and youth grow up safe, resilient, powerful, and heard.
DC Action for Children was founded in 1992 by six women concerned about the deteriorating conditions for children in the city. Together, they established a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization and transformed it into an independent voice for kids, to advance public policies that improve their well-being, especially those most affected by poverty and racism.
With the support of individuals and private foundations, DC Action for Children uses research, data, and a focus on race equity to break down barriers that stand in the way of all kids reaching their full potential. Our collaborative advocacy campaigns empower young people and all residents to raise their voices to create change.
