Before the Stand staff heads out to celebrate the holidays, I wanted to take a moment to tell you how grateful I am for the support you've given our families and students over the past year.
Because of you, we've made tremendous progress in our effort for educational equity — but the work's not done. Please show our parent members you're standing with them in their fight by making a one-time tax-deductible gift today.
We have big obstacles to tackle in 2020, including breaking down historic barriers for students of color growing up in poverty, increasing diversity in the teaching workforce, electing education champions who put students first, and partnering with districts to help more high school students graduate prepared for college or a career.
By giving, you'll also allow us to bring Teach Kindness, our four-week social-emotional learning program, to more schools at no cost and allow teachers in our Home Visit Project to meet with more families face-to-face and build positive relationships between school and home.
I believe in Stand's members. Their unrelenting determination to change the status quo is contagious and energizing. I know, with your support, we can make public education work for all students. I hope you'll stand with us, because we need you.
Wishing you a safe and fulfilling holiday season!
