    Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood
  • Overview

    Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) educates the public about commercialism’s impact on kids’ wellbeing and advocates for the end of child-targeted marketing. Our work routinely makes headlines around the world, most recently for campaigns holding Facebook and Google accountable for their data collection practices. Our advocacy has led corporations such as Mattel, Disney, and Nickelodeon to change their marketing practices. We are also the home of the Children’s Screen Time Action Network, a collaborative group of family professionals and practitioners working to reduce kids’ screen time.  Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks.

    Screen-Free Week is an annual celebration that takes place the first week of May in homes, schools, and communities throughout the world.

In 2019, over 150,000 individuals celebrated, and we anticipate more in 2020.
