OUR MISSION

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, and the DC Home Visiting Council.
