Supporting Teacher Diversity

HB 2001-5 ensures teacher diversity is a factor in the event of teacher layoffs. Email your lawmaker today in support of better representation & outcomes.

Our Mission

Stand is 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. Join us in standing up for families in your community.

Join us in the fight.

Beat the Odds

Each year, Stand awards $16,000 college scholarships to Oregon public high school seniors who have Beat the Odds. These students have overcome obstacles on their path to graduation thanks to great educators & school programs.

Meet one of our 2020 scholars, Rena.
