Stand for Children's mission of building better public schools drives our involvement in Illinois politics. We need to elect smart legislators who take courageous votes and strong stances on student-focused policy.
On Election Night all that effort paid off! Our candidates ran strong campaigns, and we're enormously proud of their success.
One candidate ran a great race and came up a bit short, while another race is still too close to call. That means last night at least 21 of 23 Stand-endorsed candidates won their races.
