About Stand for Children Louisiana
We believe ALL children and people deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in life. Education is the key that unlocks the door to success.
Yet in Louisiana, less than half of our kindergarten through third-grade students can read on grade level.
It’s time to right this wrong.
If we want our children to achieve their dreams, we must first take a stand and give every student a strong start; high expectations; effective teachers; high quality schools; and bold, student-centered leaders.
Stand is a unique catalyst for educaction equity and racial justice, to create a brighter future for us all.
Active in Louisiana since 2011, Stand has extensive experience working with parents, teachers, communities, and partner organizations to mobilize around the shared commitment of improving public education and racial justice for all Louisianians. Together, we organize and advocate for strong education policies that best serve students, elect education champions who are committed to making decisions that are best for students, and hold public officials accountable for ensuring those policies are put into effect properly.

Access to a quality public education is a basic human right – one we are dedicated to protecting.
