Coalition Partners

Committee for Children is a member of several national coalitions working to advance policies that improve the well-being of children. Through our coalition work, we leverage a rich network of voices and resources that affect policy decisions at the federal level and raise awareness about issues affecting children across America. Here’s a list of the coalitions we belong to.

Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights

The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is a coalition of organizations with the common purpose of seeking to advance civil and human rights for all Americans through government action at the national level. The Committee for Children Policy and Advocacy Team looks forward to further engaging in and helping to advance this work through an equity lens, as a part of Committee for Children’s vision to see safe children thriving in a just and peaceful world.

Children’s Budget Coalition

The Children’s Budget Coalition is dedicated to making children and families the priority in federal policy and budget decisions. Their mission is to ensure that all the nation’s children have equal opportunity to reach their full potential, through the support of federal policy that invests in children. Their work includes communication to Congress and the administration urging the prioritization of children in budget legislation.

Injury and Violence Prevention Network

The Injury and Violence Prevention Network is a group of national organizations that support injury and violence prevention policies at the national level, advocating federal funding for injury and violence prevention.

Title IV-A Coalition

The Title IV-A Coalition is an alliance of more than 60 national organizations working together to advocate maximum funding of the flexible block grant, which is authorized at $1.6 billion for FY 2018 under Title IV, part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The block grant, known as the Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) grant program, is designed to ensure that high-needs districts have access to programs that foster safe and healthy students, provide students with a well-rounded education, and increase the effective use of technology in the nation’s schools. The coalition believes that if fully funded and administered, the SSAE grant program has the potential to adequately support school districts in their central mission of providing students with the skills, resources, and supports they need to succeed.

National Coalition to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation

The coalition is committed to prevention and working together as like-minded leaders with a unified voice in the field to advance the work being done collectively. The coalition supports the belief that the prevention of child sexual abuse and exploitation is possible and is fundamental to protecting children from experiencing physical and psychological trauma.
