Fairplay (fairplayforkids.org), formerly known as Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC), is the leading watchdog of the children’s media and marketing industries and the only organization dedicated to ending child-targeted marketing. Our work routinely makes headlines around the world, and our advocacy has forced some of the world’s biggest corporations – including Google, Disney, Mattel, and Amazon – to change their marketing and data collection practices. Fairplay is the home of the Children’s Screen Time Action Network.
The Children’s Screen Time Action Network (Action Network) is the leading global coalition of children’s screen time activists and advocates working to reduce excessive technology use harming children, adolescents, and families. We host Work Groups of activists collaborating to make change. We educate members and nonmembers on the business model of big tech, the root cause of screen time challenges. We host an acclaimed webinar series, offer curated resources to professionals, educators, and families, and collaborate with impact partners to promote our agenda supporting children’s health and wellbeing in the digital age. Fairplay is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (tsne.org).
