AFC 50 Years

Advocates for Children of New York (AFC)’s mission is to ensure a high-quality education for New York students who face barriers to academic success, focusing on students from low-income backgrounds.

AFC achieves this through four integrated strategies:

  • Free advice and legal representation for families of students;
  • Free trainings and workshops for parents, communities, and educators and other professionals, to equip them to advocate on behalf of students;
  • Policy advocacy to effect change in the education system and improve education outcomes; and
  • Impact litigation to protect the right to quality education and to compel needed education reform.
