The connection between Tommorrow’s family and Stand goes back to 1996, when her mother participated in Stand for Children Day, this organization’s founding event. Tommorrow’s passion for quality education is evident in her efforts as a volunteer, student, and professionally, much of which have been directly with Stand.
Tommorrow is a graduate of Stand University for Parents. She has testified in favor of equitable funding at school board meetings, participated in principal hiring focus groups, lobbied in Washington, DC, and partnered with her alderwoman to address gun violence in the South Shore community. She has been the president of a local school council and a parent advisory committee for a CPS school. Prior to coming on staff, she was a Stand member, team leader, team captain, and facilitator for Stand as One (a resilience and well-being initiative).
In her current role at Stand, Tommorrow both facilitates and leads Stand as One. She also works with CPS parents and several schools on the south side of Chicago for equality in education and social justice for all children.
Tommorrow is the proud mother of a beautiful CPS high school student. She is a licensed cosmetologist and has earned an associate’s degree from City College of Chicago. She is pursuing her bachelor’s degree at DePaul University (History major, Women and Gender Studies minor). She plans to use her B.A. degree to further advance her advocacy reach. In her spare time, Tommorrow can be found at the local thrift store in search of her next repurposing find.
