Why

Who We Are

The Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy is a national organization dedicated to advancing a family friendly economic agenda. The Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy includes the Family Friendly Action Fund and Family Friendly Action PAC, as well as state teams working to pass family friendly policies and elect family friendly candidates.


We started the Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy, a project of the Family Friendly Action Fund, because we believe:

  • Nobody should have to choose between making a living and caring for themselves or their family.
  • Economic policies that will make families’ lives easier are popular with the majority of Americans, but we need to elect new lawmakers to pass these policies.

We started Family Friendly Action PAC because we believe:

  • Candidates need to hear directly from voters during elections about the economic issues that matter most in their lives.
