“I am grateful to Illinois Action for Children because they give so many people an opportunity to try to better their lives.” — Linda


Illinois Action for Children's Public Policy and Advocacy department works to advance legislative and administrative policies that support families, children, and early care and education. We lobby elected officials and engage in grassroots organizing, public education and advocacy.

The foundation of our work is to support parent choice and equal access to high quality early care and education for all children in Illinois. Our policy and advocacy work is funded through grants from private foundations and individual donors.
