The Every Child Matters Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization working to make children, youth, and families a national political priority. We promote the adoption of smart policies for children and youth, including:

* Ensuring that children have access to affordable, comprehensive health care services
* Expanding early-care and learning opportunities and after-school programs
* Preventing violence against children in their homes and communities
* Alleviating child poverty, and
* Addressing the special needs of children with parents in prison.

By raising the visibility of these issues during an election cycle, we urge the candidates to support, and the public to demand, greater investments in programs that address the needs of America's families. Our strategies to reach these goals include:

* Conducting candidate and policy-maker education
* Undertaking earned & paid media, including OpEds, letters-to-the-editor, billboards, radio ads, and newspaper ads
* Carrying out direct public education and outreach campaigns
* Distributing resources, information, and state-specific data on the status of children and youth
* Communicating with our network of tens of thousands of child advocates in local communities
* Building strategic partnerships with state and local child advocacy and child-serving organizations
