Illinois Action for Children is committed to ensuring every child in Illinois receives quality early childcare and education. That’s why we created a strong coalition of parents, early childhood professionals, advocates, and community leaders to create meaningful change in Illinois’ early childhood system.

Illinois Action for Children believes in the power of grassroots engagement. Our coalition prioritizes community involvement, policy expertise, independent research, and strategic partnerships to drive effective advocacy. Through grassroots organizing, events, and research initiatives, we empower individuals and communities to shape the systems that impact them.
