About the CDF Action Council: The CDF Action Council advances child well-being through grassroots lobbying, advocating in Congress and in statehouses for child-centered policies, and holding elected officials publicly accountable for supporting those policies. Its signature, nonpartisan Legislative Report Card informs the American public about members’ of Congress activity across a range of issues impacting children. Founded in 1969 as the Washington Research Project Action Council, the CDF Action Council is governed by an eight-person Policy Council and is registered as a 501(c)4 social welfare organization in the District of Columbia.
