Since 1969.



Massachusetts Advocates for Children’s mission is to remove barriers to educational and life opportunities for children and youth.

We do so by advocating for and partnering with students and families; transforming school cultures to be inclusive, safe and supportive; and creating systemic change so all children and youth can learn, reach their potential, and thrive.

We focus our advocacy on children and youth who face significant barriers, inequities, and/or discrimination because of their economic status, disability, race, ethnicity/culture, immigration status, English Learner status, and/or traumatic life experiences.


For more than 45 years, Massachusetts Advocates for Children has been dedicated to its mission. Our work is carried out through the eyes of a child, the heart of a parent, the caring of community and the laws of the land. With your support, we can continue to support access to education and opportunity for all children. Thank you for your interest in our work.

The Massachusetts Advocates for Children is a 501(c)(3) organization,  EIN 04-2488456.

Your contribution is fully tax-deductible.
