Stand for Children Oregon Proudly Endorses 54 Education Champions in the 2022 General Election

Endorsed candidates chosen by an Endorsement Committee comprised of students, parents, educators, and community leaders 

PORTLAND – Stand for Children is committed to electing candidates who will fight for an equitable public education system that gives all students a chance to succeed. For the general election to be held on November 8, 2022, we proudly endorse 54 education champions in Oregon who show a commitment to equity and racial justice, to raising achievement for all students, to increasing family and community involvement, to improving school funding, and to ensuring our schools have effective leaders and educators.

Stand’s rigorous endorsement process begins by inviting candidates to complete a questionnaire based on our mission and values. Based on a candidate’s questionnaire responses and voting record – some candidates were invited for an interview with our Endorsement Committee, in addition to alignment on issues, we also favor candidates with strong personal character, competent plans for making systemic improvements to our education system, and vision which includes clear commitments. The candidate must value citizen engagement and welcome meaningful participation by Stand for Children in the policy-making process.

Stand for Children also urges you to VOTE YES on Measure 114, to make our Schools and Communities Safer.

Measure 114 will reduce gun violence. It will require a completed background check, hands-on safety training, fingerprinting and a permit to purchase a gun, and prohibit the sale of high capacity ammunition.
