Education is a human right.

We’re improving the odds for children through a powerful network of teachers and educators who seek to change the educational environment for the better.

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.

Why I Stand
