Mission Statement

To teach everyday people how to join together in an effective grassroots voice in order to win concrete, long-lasting improvements for children, at both state and local levels.

Description

Stand for Children is a citizen voice for children. We advocate for improvements to and funding for programs that give every child a fair chance in life.

Since 1999, Stand for Children, a 501(c)(4) national membership organization, and Stand for Children Leadership Center, a 501(c)(3) national training and leadership development organization, have won 65 victories at the state and local level. These victories have helped over 2,000,000 children and leveraged more than $650 million for improved education, health care, and other important children's programs.

Our model of effective, citizen activism is organized through statewide affiliates and local Chapters. We have three state affiliates: Oregon, Massachusetts, and Tennessee, supported by a national office in Portland, Oregon.
