Advocates for Children of New York (AFC) serves ALL New York City students and young children, from birth through age 26, who are struggling in school or experiencing school discrimination of any kind.
In addition to advice and information we offer to all NYC callers, we provide free legal counsel to families from low-income backgrounds, including representation at school-related hearings and appeals. We also offer all families informative workshops and a wide range of free resources including fact sheets, brochures, referrals, and guides, so that they can advocate on behalf of their children’s educational rights.
