Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families (AACF) was incorporated. The charter was signed by Hillary Rodham Clinton, Sharon Pallone, and Betty Lowe. The nonprofit policy advocacy organization was modeled after the Children’s Defense Fund. AACF advocates for programs and policies that help Arkansass low- and middle-income families, including better access to high-quality preschool programs, affordable health coverage, a tax system that benefits working families, and juvenile justice reforms that focus on the rehabilitation of youthful offenders.
