“Fight For Children is really helping teachers to be successful…to bring kids up to the next level of learning.”
For 25 years, Fight For Children has been championing better lives through better education.
About our founder
Joseph E. Robert, Jr. was passionate about every child having access to a high quality education. He founded Fight For Children in 1990, and since that time, the organization has made a major impact on the lives of low-income DC area children by championing strategic improvement in education.
Joe was a legendary business and civic figure in the Washington, DC area who believed education was the key to children’s success as the next generation of leaders. Before he passed away, Joe challenged Fight For Children to think boldly, and to do even more to help DC area children thrive.
