In 1971, three education activists created Advocates for Children of New York (AFC) to address the desperate need for skilled intervention to protect New York City children from inappropriate suspension; improve education for young people with disabilities; and foster communication between schools and parents. To this day, AFC leads the charge for access to quality education for ALL New York City students, focusing on the children and youth who are most likely to experience failure or discrimination in school because of poverty, disability, race, ethnicity, immigrant or English Language Learner status, homelessness, sexual orientation, gender identity, or involvement in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems. No other city-wide organization works in the trenches, providing students and their families with the one-on-one guidance and advocacy they need, while at the same time, pressing for systemic reforms that benefit ALL students.
