Help dismantle racism in public education
Horrifically, we all watched as George Floyd had no chance to survive with a knee on his neck. The systemic racism that leads to the death of black people at the hands of police is the same racism that feeds significant inequities and injustice in our schools. Black and brown students face harsher discipline and don’t get the same resources, quality instruction or access to great schools as their white counterparts.
Join us on these campaigns below to ensure a more just and equitable education system.
Stop education cuts that will harm black and brown students
Send an email to our Hoosier U.S. Senators asking them to support significant funds for Indiana to prevent huge cuts to education.
Join black and brown parents in their push to safely reopen schools
We’re in the midst of a pandemic that is hitting communities of color harder than any other. Yet some schools may reopen without a school nurse. Stand parents have a plan to equitably and safely reopen schools. Sign on to their plan.
Take the summer reading pledge and help educate our children about racism
As we work with parents to increase reading at home this summer, we’re also suggesting books for all ages that teach children about racism and empower them to be a voice for change.
Take the pledge and learn more about the program.
Donate to support our work for more just and equitable schools
Stand for Children is 100% donor funded, and more than ever we need to expand our work to close the educational opportunity gap and support the voices of the black and brown families we work with.
