Our FY22 Budget Priorities

In late May, Mayor Bowser will release her administration’s FY21 supplemental and FY22 budgets. In the months to follow, as Mayor Bowser and the DC Council work together to pass a balanced budget, it is vital they keep their commitment to placing racial equity at the center of their decisions.

New: DC Kids Count 2021 Ward Snapshots!

A valuable tool for community leaders, advocates, and policymakers that provides the best available District-level and ward-level indicators of child well-being. The ward-level data clearly show the legacy of redlining, segregation, and systemic underinvestment in communities of color.

Ward Snapshots


Let’s work together to break down structural barriers that stand in the way of all kids reaching their full potential.

We're making the District of Columbia a place where all kids grow up safe, resilient, powerful and heard.

DC Action uses research, data, and a racial equity lens to break down barriers that stand in the way of all kids reaching their full potential. Our collaborative advocacy campaigns bring the power of young people and all residents to raise their voices to create change.

DC Action is the home of DC Kids Count, Under 3 DC, DC Out-of-School Time Coalition, the DC Home Visiting Council and the Youth Homelessness Advocacy Coalition.
