Too often, policy changes to benefit children take the form of quick fixes and little tweaks. Policymakers and advocates tinker around the edges, tackling the problems that seem most easily solvable. No matter how good our intentions are as we try to provide children in DC with quick fix solutions, it is clearly NOT enough. Nor is it fruitful to continue to think these small interventions will somehow solve the systemic challenges our children face.

Ever since the DC KIDS COUNT e-databook premiered last fall, DC Action knew the potential of this project was only just beginning to be realized. There are many important indicators of DC children’s well-being we still want to visualize, and data updates we want to make as DC’s neighborhoods continuously grow and change.

Are Businesses Ready to Go Back to School?

In April 2013, we hosted a business roundtable discussion to kick-off our 10 for 10 Campaign.  We are looking for 10 business partners to invest $10,000 in 10 critical assets that we believe all DC neighborhoods need to have for children to reach their full potential. (Shout-out to PNC and Kellogg for being our first two Business Champions!)

Individuals, corporations, and foundations continue to support DC Action on a daily basis.

See how your donation today will be utilized to achieve a vision of a city where a child’s success is not determined by his/her zip code.

Together we can create a brighter city where all children and youth have the resources and assets they need to thrive and succeed!

Today we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. As National Public Radio notes, when 12-year old Edith Lee-Payne first heard Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “talk about his dream for America, she indeed felt that her life embodied some of what he envisioned.” For millions of children across the nation and around the globe, that dream lives on today.
