I Was Close to Giving Up, Then I Called Stand

Parent & Family Engagement, Who We Are | 12/11/2019

Leader, Stand for Children Arizona

I almost gave up.

After a year of problems with my children's school, I was frustrated. A group of other parents and I went to the administration to get answers – but got nothing. That's when I contacted Stand for Children. 

Two weeks later, our concerns were heard and resolved. After seeing how Stand helped my family, I decided to get involved. Now, four years later, I'm leading other parents who want to have their voices heard too. 

Become a Stand for Children donor today to support families like mine fighting to access a quality public education for their kids. 

With Stand, I've taken an active role in my children's lives and my community. I've interviewed candidates for office, knocked on doors to talk to my neighbors about our school system, and made calls to encourage people to vote. I host reading contests at my children’s school and do everything I can to make sure all students have books. 

I'm proud of the parent I've become with Stand. Please give what you can today so Stand can help more families become active leaders in their children's education.
