Stand for Children

Stand for Children's mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, a college education. To make that happen, we educate and empower parents, teachers, and community members to demand excellent schools; advocate for effective local, state and national education policies and investments; and ensure the policies and funding we advocate for reach classrooms and help students.

In the ten years since Stand launched its Massachusetts state office, the organization has grown to unite nearly 800 members and 60,000 supporters across the state in advocating for policies that benefitted 1.3 million Massachusetts children and inspired thousands of parents to demand a better public education for their children.
