Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth

Vision: Coleman Advocates believes that all children and families deserve access to high quality education, living wage jobs, family-supporting benefits and affordable housing. Coleman believes that the voices and perspectives of low-income youth and parents are essential to developing real solutions for underserved public schools.

Impact: From the nation’s first tax set-aside for children’s services, alternatives to incarceration for vulnerable youth, to landmark education equity reforms, Coleman members have developed, advocated for, and won policy and budget changes that have improved conditions and expanded opportunities for children and families in San Francisco.
