Advocacy Is What We Do Best

Let Thy Work Appear Unto Thy Servant, and Thy Glory Unto Their Children.
Psalms 90:16 (KJV)


Advocacy can take many forms.  In simple terms, it means making the case for your cause or mission.  When we talk about advocacy at the Military Children's Six Foundation (MC6F), we usually mean making your case in a way that will change public policy to help the causes of military children. That means reaching audiences in a position to help make those changes. MC6F Advocacy could be any one of a number of things from research and public education to lobbying elected officials and voter engagement. These activities are especially important when you want to make sure that underrepresented and vulnerable communities have a voice in decisions that affect them.

MC6F Advocacy works to ensure that children’s rights are considered in government laws, policies, budgets, communities, and programs. An independent advocate, such as through the office of the ombudsman for children or a child rights-focused non-governmental organization, like the Military Children's Six Foundation serves to represent the best interests of military children and youth, independently of political structures.

Focus Areas

The Military Children Advocacy focuses on four key priorities when it comes to the well-being of military children: education, mental health services and resources, and advocacy. We are committed to advocating for legislative reform to improve the lives of military children and to ensure that their rights and needs are properly addressed.


Additionally, we are dedicated to amplifying the work of those battling the global issues of sexual abuse, trafficking, incest, and exploitation to give children the strength not just to survive, but to thrive
