Electing Education Champions
Stand for Children supports candidates who are committed to fighting for education equity and racial justice to create a brighter future for us all. We look for champions at the state and local level who are bold, substantive, and solutions-oriented – leaders who move the needle forward for the next generation and dismantle the systemic barriers holding back too many in areas including education, economic opportunity, and equity.
