I spent several years as a Stand for Chidren member and activist. in the beginning Stand was very helpful in organizing our community around education funding issues. We got some great training and our membership grew. Then everything changed. Stand decided they they no longer needed us or our community. Only later did I discover that it was because they decided to go with the money provided by large wealthy charities that were looking for fronts for their agenda. Stand Children now represents the interests of the Walton Foundation, The Gates Foundation and many other powerful political interests. They are no longer a grassroots organization. I am very sad about how this all played out.
