Children’s Defense Fund-California: 2021 Policy Agenda

This document identifies the actions that CDF-CA is pursuing in 2021 to ensure that children—particularly poor Black, Brown and Indigenous children—have what they need to realize their potential. Recognizing that children don’t come in pieces, our policy agenda focuses on actions that support the whole child including their families, the communities where they live, the systems meant to serve them, and their physical and mental health.
