Policy Partnership

Our Partners

NCA partners with a broad range of organizations to ensure that our voice is heard on the issues that matter most to our members and the children they serve.

Our partners include:

National Coalition to End Child Abuse Deaths
National Children’s Alliance and its partners — the Every Child Matters Education Fund, the National Association of Social Workers, the National District Attorneys Association, and the National Center for the Review and Prevention of Child Deaths —came together to form The National Coalition to End Child Abuse Deaths in 2009 to launch a campaign urging Congress and the Administration to address the deaths in America of children. Every day nearly 8 children die from abuse and neglect. In January 2013, Congress passed the Protect Our Kids Act, a major milestone in the Coalition’s work to address child fatalities. The act creates a bi-partisan, two-year Commission to Eliminate Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities consisting of 12 members appointed by the President and congressional leaders. The commission will work together to evaluate current programs and prevention efforts, and recommend a comprehensive national strategy to reduce and prevent child abuse and neglect fatalities. The Coalition will continue to follow the work of the Commission and urge our collective memberships to attend and provide testimony at public hearings.


National Child Abuse Coalition
The National Child Abuse Coalition is a group of national voluntary and professional organizations; the Coalition embodies a commitment to coordinate federal advocacy efforts on behalf of abused and neglected children. The National Child Abuse Coalition has become a resource for advocacy and a focal point for leadership and strategy on federal legislative issues in child maltreatment.

Children’s Leadership Council
The Children’s Leadership Council is a coalition of organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives, health, education and well-being of our nation’s children and youth.

NCA strongly supports all efforts to end human trafficking.  NCA has joined forces with ECPAT, which is a non-governmental organization and global network of organizations dedicated to ending the commercial sexual exploitation of children.

Human Rights 4 Girls
NCA has also joined forces with Rights 4 Girls, a human rights organization focused on gender-based violence and its impact on vulnerable young women and girls in the U.S., to combat human trafficking.

American Academy of Pediatrics
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is organization of 62,000 pediatricians committed to the optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.  As such, it has joined together with NCA to urge Congress to support the work that we do on the national level, as well as the work that our member centers do in communities across the country.
