Campaign For A Commercial-Free Childhood

Campaign For A Commercial-Free Childhood (formerly Stop Commercial Exploitation of Children) is a national coalition of health care professionals, educators, advocacy groups and concerned parents who counter the harmful effects of marketing to children through action, advocacy, education, research, and collaboration among organizations and individuals who care about children.  We support the rights of children to grow up – and the rights of parents to raise them – without being undermined by rampant consumerism.
