This year, AFC is celebrating half a century of advocacy on behalf of NYC students and their families. Below, we cover some highlights from the organization's history, and the vast community that has made it possible: decades of dedicated AFC Board members and staff; fearless community partners and elected officials; passionate educators who have given their all for their students; thousands of NYC students and families who have trusted us and been our partners in advocacy; and our steadfast supporters.
