To achieve our goal of winning new public investments in children, Every Child Matters collaborates with groups and individuals in states to highlight the needs of children and families, and advocate for the dollars that will address those needs. We educate candidates, office holders, the media, and the public about issues such as child poverty, early education and care, health, and safety by distributing information, coordinating events, holding public and candidate forums, training groups in civic engagement, and organizing.

Since our inception in 2002, we have held campaigns in 14 states – AR, CO, IA, LA, ME, MN, MS, NH, NM, NV, NY, OH, SC, WA, and WV.

You are always welcome to attend an event or, better yet, volunteer for a couple hours, reach out to your neighbors, and help us organize.
