What We've Done
On June 1, 1996, more than 300,000 people gathered at the Lincoln Memorial for the first ever Stand for Children Day, the largest demonstration for children in U.S. history. Out of this day, parents and community members used the tremendous energy to return home and fight to improve the lives of children through better education.
Every day the staff, members, and supporters of Stand for Children heed the call of Civil Rights icon, Rosa Parks, who challenged the rally crowd by saying, “If I can sit down for justice, you can stand up for children."
Since 1999, Stand has achieved over 209 state and local victories and leveraged over $6.7 billion in education investments. The policies and investments we’ve secured are improving the lives of more than 5.6 million children.
We work across 10 states to close the achievement gap and to focus on passing policies on the state and local level that will ensure all children, especially those whose boundless potential is overlooked and under-tapped, have access to a quality public education.
