With the support of individuals and private foundations, 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. 

We rely on the generosity of our donors to support our critical work to ensure our children and youth grow up safe, resilient, powerful, and heard. Great work is possible because of great supporters.
