About Us

What We Do

The American Federation for Children is a 501(c)(4) organization that does lobbying and grassroots advocacy work in the states and Washington, D.C.  We are affiliated with the American Federation for Children Action Fund, a political committee that supports and opposes state-level candidates for elected office. We work closely with our educational partner, the American Federation for Children Growth Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, to promote the benefits of—and the need for—school choice, make parents aware of their options, mobilize grassroots supports and ensure private school choice laws work for students.

The American Federation for Children works in states across America to advance our mission. Our headquarters are in Washington, D.C., with state-based staff located in regional offices around the country.
