Our Children’s Law Center community is unique – a beautiful kaleidoscope of children, youth and adults with a diverse set of talents and experiences. Together, we are working toward a bold vision: a world in which all children have a strong foundation of family, health and education – and are free from poverty, trauma, racism and other forms of oppression.

Turning our shared vision into reality won’t happen quickly. To sustain the energy to keep fighting for justice, we need to make time to rest and renew our spirits. That’s why we asked children and families across our community to share what brings them comfort and joy and featured their photos in our 2024 calendar.

Whether it’s snuggling a favorite stuffed animal, riding a scooter or building with Legos – what brings each of us comfort or joy is as varied and diverse as the people who make up our community.

Who We Are

Together with DC children and families, community partners and pro bono attorneys, we use the law to solve children’s urgent problems today and improve the systems that will affect their lives tomorrow. Since our founding in 1996, we have reached more than 50,000 children and families directly and multiplied our impact by advocating for city-wide solutions that benefit hundreds of thousands more.
