Our Mission

Stand for Children is a non-profit education advocacy organization focused on ensuring all students receive a high quality, relevant education, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped because of their skin color, zip code, first language, or disability. We make an impact by:

  • Partnering with parents to support their children’s education journey and to become strong advocates.
  • Advocating, mainly at the state and local level, for proven policies and funding primarily focused on helping students reach make-or-break milestones:
    • Reading well by the end of third grade
    • Graduating high school ready for college, career training, or a career
  • Ensuring the changes we fight for reach classrooms and directly support students. 
  • Electing candidates committed to fighting for an equitable public education system that gives all students a chance to succeed.
 

Stand for Children es una organización sin fines de lucro de abogacía educacional concentrada en asegurar que todos los estudiantes reciban una educación relevante y de alta calidad, especialmente aquellos estudiantes con potencial ilimitado quienes muchas veces son pasados por alto por el color de su piel, código postal, idioma primario, o discapacidad.

Nuestro impacto se realiza:

  • Asociándonos con padres de familia para apoyar la trayectoria educacional de sus hijos y para que se conviertan en grandes defensores de su causa.
  • Abogando, mayormente a nivel estatal y local para pólizas comprobadas y fondos primariamente concentrados en ayudar a estudiantes a alcanzar las siguientes metas cruciales:
    • Leer bien no más tardar que el final del tercer grado
    • Graduándose de la secundaria listos para la universidad, capacitación de carrera profesional, o una carrera
  • Asegurando que los cambios por los cuales luchamos lleguen a las aulas escolares y apoyen directamente a los estudiantes
  • Eligiendo candidatos comprometidos a luchar por un sistema de educación pública justo que le dé a todos los estudiantes la oportunidad de tener éxito.

 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Mission Statement: Stand for Children celebrates diversity, equity, and inclusiveness. We embrace these pillars of excellence as crucial to a healthy organization and supportive of the communities we serve. However, we recognize that inequitable systems, institutional racism, discriminatory practices, and implicit bias continue to limit access and widen the opportunity gap for students who lack power and privilege.
