A Library in Every Home

Research has shown a home library increases vocabulary development, academic success, and an overall life success. But many children have no books at home.

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.

A Plan for Families

The Child Tax Credit helps families in our community raise their children with basic necessities, but it has an expiration date. Help us extend the Child Tax Credit by urging your U.S. Senators to pass the American Jobs and Families Plan.
