For two decades, CCFC has been standing up to giant companies to ensure that kids’ wellbeing comes before corporations’ bottom lines. Our advocacy has resulted in changes at some of the world’s largest corporations, including Amazon, Google, and Hasbro.

But we can’t do it without our supporters. Your voice is essential to our campaigns – here’s how you can help right now.

Advocate against edtech overuse

Educational technology, or edtech, is spreading like wildfire in classrooms across the US thanks to Big Tech marketing campaigns that target underfunded schools. But there’s no evidence that shows more in-school screen time and digital device use actually contributes to learning outcomes. In reality, edtech contributes to classroom distractions, the deprofessionalization of teaching, and privacy concerns about student data.

Parents and educators across the US are fighting back against edtech overuse and advocating for the screen-free class time that all students need and deserve. And with the Screens in Schools Action Kit, you can join them.

Say “no” to online preschool!

Decades of research show the benefits of early education, but millions of low-income and rural families still lack access to high-quality preschool. This unequal access harms kids, families, and communities, but some edtech companies see it as a lucrative opportunity to corner a $70 billion “preschool market.” The result is “online preschool”: algorithm-driven software bundled with the lie that kindergarten readiness can be transmitted through a screen.

Screens can’t replace the essential social-emotional learning experience of IRL early education. Tell your state reps: reject online pre-K and fund universal preschool!

Tell Google: Adopt the Kids' App Store Standards now!

Apps for kids shouldn’t serve deceptive ads, collect personal data, or trick children into making in-app purchases – but Google recommends a slew of “family-friendly” apps that do just that!

Parents should be able to trust that anything recommended “for children” is actually safe for children. By adopting CCFC’s Kids’ App Store Standards – simple rules that require a human review of each app and ban in-app purchases, unfair advertising, and illegal data collection – Google can make parents’ lives easier, and kids’ experiences safer.
