Fairplay (fairplayforkids.org), formerly known as 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 YouTube accountable for their practices which impact children, and calling out the potential harms of a proposed Instagram for kids. Our advocacy has led corporations such as Google, 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.
Fairplay is a fiscally sponsored organization of TSNE (tsne.org).
Fairplay is seeking a full-time Campaign Organizer to support our “Risky by Design” initiative, a multi-faceted campaign that will build on CCFC’s successful advocacy to hold platforms accountable for their failures to protect children’s privacy. This campaign will promote support for a Design Code to protect young people in the United States, similar to the Age-Appropriate Design Code being implemented in the UK.
