When we stand together

Elections | 11/08/2018

Toya Fick
Executive Director, Stand for Children Oregon

When we stand together, we achieve incredible things. Oregonians spoke in Tuesday’s election, and every single one of Stand’s 44 endorsed education champions but one came out on top!

Elections have consequences – Oregonians voted to make education a top priority, and now it’s time to turn those plans into action.

We didn’t get here by accident...

You showed up. You walked block-by-block. You met with your neighbors and explained the issues. You voted, and you encouraged other people to vote.

From passing school bonds in Astoria, Eugene and Oregon City, to defeating a measure that would undermine civil rights protections, to helping elect more than 40 education champions, you showed everyone what a Stand for Children leader is.

The future of Measure 98 funding rests with the people we elected this week. Help us work with them in the coming legislative session to ensure these vital investments continue in high schools across our state.

We got here by standing together, and we’ll deliver full funding by staying that way.

Thank you for your leadership!
