You've Stood With Us

Family Engagement & Organizing, About Us | 04/24/2019

Aranda Stathers
Development and State Operations Coordinator

Aranda plays an integral role in all areas of Stand’s work, from development to operations and program support.

The first four months of 2019 have flown by, and it’s hard to believe all that’s changed in that short time. We have a new governor and new legislative session in Springfield. Together, we convinced lawmakers to help Stop Illinois Brain Drain by supporting bills that increase opportunities for high school students.

Next month, Chicago will have a new mayor. We went door-to-door to ask families what education issues are on their minds, and we look forward to partnering with Mayor-elect Lightfoot to solve the problems parents and students worry about most.

Your support has made this work possible, and with your continued generosity, we can keep fighting to make sure every child in Chicago and Illinois receives the high-quality public education they deserve.
