The Children’s Defense Fund is a non-profect child advocacy organization that provides a strong, effective and independent voice for all the children of America who cannot vote, lobby or speak for themselves. They pay particular attention to the needs of poor and minority children and those with disabilities. CDF educates the nation about the needs of children and encourages preventive investments before they get sick, drop out of school, get into trouble or suffer family breakdown.  It is a great resource to find ways to effectively lobby legislators regarding issues affecting children and families.
