Join the Stand for Children family!
As a parent, I was tired of seeing my sons struggle and not succeed because they weren’t understanding – I had flashbacks to when I was a kid. I became an advocate for Stand because of what was happening to my sons in the school system. I was tired of everyone telling me to ignore what I knew was not right and would not serve my sons, just as it had not served me. At that moment I said,
“NO, this isn’t going to be a repeat with my kids.”
So, I started to be a loud voice for my children. Then I was introduced to Stand for Children Washington, an organization who wants all students to be successful. Now I’ve gone to Olympia and spoken to legislative panels and had one-on-one meetings with lawmakers. A lot of the time people think they don’t have a voice, and I’m here to tell you with 100% certainty that you do.
