Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood's (CCFC) mission is to support parents' efforts to raise healthy families by limiting commercial access to children and ending the exploitative practice of child-targeted marketing. In working for the rights of children to grow up - and the freedom for parents to raise them - without being underminded by corporate interests, CCFC promotes a more democratic and sustainable world.
