At Illinois Action for Children, We Advocate for Policies that Make a Difference

It is our experience and our belief that we can transform the lives of children by making sure the voices of families, educators and child care providers are heard at all levels of government.

  • Prioritize equitable outcomes from Black, Latinx, low-income, and rural children and families.
  • Support children by supporting their families.
  • Ensure the system works for families and providers.
  • Support and respect parent choice.
