Stand’s Endorsed Candidates

If your experience has been anything like mine, every time you turn on the TV or go to the mailbox, you can’t avoid campaign ads or mailers. It’s definitely campaign season in Illinois.

Campaign season means something to us here at Stand, too, as we look for candidates to champion issues related to education equity and racial justice. These elections can have such a huge impact on those issues and so many others.
