Our Approach 

Common Sense is here to help kids thrive in today's fast-paced digital world. For our advocacy team, that means ensuring access to quality technology and giving kids positive experiences with media that further their opportunity to be engaged digital citizens.

We've heard the growing concern from parents, educators, and researchers about the physical, mental, and societal effects of technology on kids and about the need for media balance. Common Sense Kids Action is dedicated to ensuring that all kids have the opportunity to succeed, no matter what comes their way.

This is how we do it:

Legislative advocacy
We highlight laws that are "For Kids" and oppose those that are "Against Kids," and we work with lawmakers across the country to champion legislation that supports kids' digital well-being.

Strategic partnerships
Together with industry partners, business leaders, and organizations, we identify opportunities to better support the most tracked and vulnerable generation online: young people.

Public awareness
Our advocacy campaigns and voter resources are created by experts and backed by research to keep the public informed about what's in the news and on the ballot.

Data on the impact of media and tech on kids can help identify evidence-based harms and opportunities to inform needed changes.
