Josh Golin, MA
Executive Director, CCFC
Josh started at the Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood as an intern in 2003 and has been with the organization in a variety of capacities ever since. While CCFC is perhaps best known for its highly publicized corporate campaigns, it has increasingly focused its efforts on helping families unplug from ad-supported screens. Josh is thrilled that CCFC is the home of the new Children’s Screen Time Action Network and looks forward to seeing the collaborations that develop. Josh’s 8-year-old daughter, Clara, is also a vocal advocate for limited screen time who is not shy about reminding her parents that she is infinitely more interesting and important than the content on their devices.
