About Us

We're shaping fair and equitable public policy for all of DC's children and youth to 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 independent voice for kids to advance public policies that improve the well-being of children, 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.
