"I love that Stand’s work includes everyone - parents, teachers, school administrators, community members, community leaders, grasstop leaders, elected officials - in the education process. It takes a village to raise a child…Stand for Children also asks that whole village to work together to improve the quality of education for our children and our children’s children.”
"As a product of inner-city public schools, I firmly believe that quality education is the only way to break the cycle of poverty and improve life chances for kids in low-income communities. Having worked as an advocate for working-class families for most of my life, my job at Stand offers me a chance to organize with working parents to fight for the best possible education for their children in the hopes of realizing the American Dream."
"As an organizer, I am inspired everyday by our valiant leaders and members who drive our work! Stand gives me the opportunity to help parents be lifelong advocates and that is truly one of the best parts of my job! It is a great feeling to work for an organization where we don’t only make a difference for parents and their children in Oregon, but throughout the nation."
