Automatic Benefit for Children (ABC) Coalition

The mission of the Automatic Benefit for Children (ABC) coalition is to create a child allowance, or a guaranteed minimum income for children, that provides regular, meaningful assistance to families, promotes racial equity and justice, enjoys broad public support, and serves as a foundation for a more equitable and inclusive social support system.

The ABC Coalition is an intersectional group of national, state, and grassroots organizations committed to the passage and full implementation of a guaranteed income that benefits all children. We believe all children should have what they need to pursue their goals and achieve their full potential and that this requires a society in which all families can afford the essentials their children need to grow and thrive.
