About Children’s Alliance

The Children’s Alliance ensures that laws, policies and programs work for kids, and we hold our leaders accountable until they secure the resources required to make all children safe and healthy. For more than 30 years, Children’s Alliance has worked in Washington state to reaffirm our one purpose: to put public policy on the side of kids. We use our five tools of democracy—data, storytelling, collaboration, mobilization, and lobbying—to build opportunity for Washington’s kids. We focused our efforts on the kids who are furthest away from that opportunity: kids of color and kids living in poverty. Visit for more.
