The Commercialization of Childhood: How Marketing Harms Children

The first CCFC summit took place at the Grand Hyatt in New York City in protest of a “how-to” conference in the same building called “Advertising and Promoting to Kids.”  While markers were a few floors below learning how best to exploit children, we gathered an extraordinary group of activists & scholars to highlight the harms of commercializing childhood. 
The summit was followed by a demonstration outside the hotel protesting The Golden Marble Awards—the adverting industry’s celebration of marketing to children.
