What We Do

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.
