The CDF Action Council is an affiliated 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization of the Children’s Defense Fund. We champion policies and engage in legislative advocacy that will lift children out of poverty; protect them from abuse and neglect; and ensure their access to health care, quality education, and a moral and spiritual foundation.
