About Stand for Children Oregon
Education is the key that unlocks the door to success but far too many children are not getting the education they need to prepare them for the future.
Stand for Children Oregon believes that all children, regardless of their background, should receive a quality public education.
We work to mobilize our community around a common goal of creating vibrant Oregon schools that are great places to teach and learn.
Together with parents, communities and our advocacy partners we elect state legislators and local officials who will be champions for education. We deliver policy victories in Salem. And we follow through to ensure new policies are effectively implemented to help create vibrant schools that are great places to teach and learn.
Rather than help one child at a time through direct service, Stand for Children builds local and statewide networks of citizen advocates capable of convincing voters and elected officials to invest in the programs and services – like public schools – that help all children thrive.
