At DC Action, we’re uniting all those fighting on behalf of DC’s children and youth to pursue a single, shared vision for what it looks like to grow up in our city. Because, while childhood exists on a continuum from birth to adulthood, the systems, programs, and organizations designed to support our children and youth are too often fragmented by age. Together with our young people, parents, and community partners, we’re advocating with one voice for public policies that support kids at every step from early childhood to early adulthood. We are stronger, louder, and more effective together. And, whether we are focused on helping a toddler learn her letters or a young man pursue his professional passion, we share one goal: that all of DC’s children and youth grow up safe, resilient, powerful, and heard.
One Voice. One Future.
We lead councils and coalitions such as the DC Home Visiting Council, Under 3 DC, the DC Out-of-School Time Coalition, and the Campaign to End Family and Youth Homelessness, and participate in many more. By blending our respective areas of focus and unique strengths, we believe we can achieve bigger and bolder outcomes for kids in the District of Columbia.
