30+ Year History of Creating Better Futures for Florida Children
At the state capitol and in communities across Florida, American Children’s Campaign is the leading nonpartisan voice for children — no matter their race, ethnicity, gender identity or place of birth. Since 1992, American Children’s Campaign has been at the forefront of policy wins for children.
We import good policy from our allies in other states and export good policy as well. Together with others, our public education campaigns and strategic advocacy have resulted in numerous policy improvements and new laws that have eliminated barriers standing in kids’ way.
Among the many laws and services we’ve provided leadership to or activated widespread support for include: Universal Pre-K (envisioned by our polling science); child marriage ban; the Safe Harbor Act; Civil Citations as an alternative to arrest; Open Doors Outreach Network for sex trafficked children (research, model conception, and secured initial funding); and more.
Growing Reach and Strategic Collaborations
Together with thousands of supporters and a diverse group of organizational leaders who make up our TEAM FUTURE Strategy Advocacy and Equity Network, we speak in unity as we urge action. Together we elevate the voices of those most affected by challenges facing everyday children and families.
American Children’s Campaign covers a broad spectrum of key children’s issues from birthing healthy babies to children needing protection and aging out of foster care and juveniles facing transfer to adult court. Our focus areas allow us to develop data-driven policy solutions and a comprehensive action agenda.
