It’s hard to believe that five years ago Stand for Children Louisiana opened its first offices in Baton Rouge and New Orleans with just one goal in mind – to give every child the quality education they need and deserve to succeed in college, career, and life.
It’s been a busy 5 years! We’ve worked with over 5,000 parents through educational workshops, supported and helped elect 12 local and state education champions and have empowered more than 100 parent and educator members to testify on local and state education issues.
I am constantly amazed by the tenacity and determination of our parent members who sacrifice their precious free time to canvass neighborhoods for better schools. I am inspired by educator leaders who fight to give their students the quality education they deserve in the classroom every day. And most of all, I am determined to keep up the great work for students in the years to come.
