Civic Action, Equitable Funding | 11/15/2019

Mimi Rodman
Executive Director

Stand advocates get things done. They know when to take a stand and lend their voice to an important issue.

Recently, advocates from across Illinois told their leaders in Springfield to prioritize education funding next session.

We will need your voice when the time comes to secure the next additional batch of funding our schools desperately need. And we will need your voice in the continued fight for educational equity.

Can I count on you to support Stand’s work?

The fight for equity has taken years, but we are committed to seeing it through. We’re making progress, sure, but it remains appalling to me that, in 2019, a kindergarten student will graduate high school – high school! – before Illinois has a fully funded formula.

That’s not right. We must do better.

Your gift today will enable Stand to continue the push to ensure all Illinois students receive the high-quality education they deserve. Will you join me in supporting Stand with a $25 donation today?

The fight for educational equity takes team players from across Illinois, team players like you. Thanks for making your voice heard in that fight.
