1. Quality Education for Every Hoosier Child

At Stand Up Indiana, we believe that education is the cornerstone of a brighter future for our state’s families. We advocate for policies that ensure every Hoosier child has access to a high-quality education, regardless of their zip code. This includes supporting initiatives that provide adequate resources to schools, hiring and retaining excellent educators, and addressing educational disparities to create an equitable learning environment for all.

2. Affordable Healthcare for Every Family

Health is the foundation of a strong and happy family. We advocate for policies that ensure affordable and accessible healthcare for every Hoosier family. This includes supporting initiatives to expand healthcare coverage, reduce prescription drug costs, and invest in mental health resources. A healthy family is a resilient family, capable of overcoming challenges and thriving together.

3. Fair Wage Policies to Strengthen Families

Economic stability is crucial for families to thrive. Stand Up Indiana actively advocates for fair wage policies that provide working families with a living wage. This includes supporting increases in the minimum wage, fair labor practices, and workplace policies that promote a healthy work-life balance. By championing fair wages, we contribute to the economic well-being of Hoosier families and foster an environment where every member can pursue their dreams.

4. Family Leave Policies for Work-Life Balance

Balancing work and family life is a challenge many Hoosiers face. We advocate for family leave policies that provide parents with the time and flexibility they need to care for their families without sacrificing their careers. This includes supporting paid family leave, flexible work schedules, and policies that promote a family-friendly workplace culture.

5. Affordable Housing for Hoosier Families

A stable home is the foundation of a strong family. Stand Up Indiana supports policies that address affordable housing challenges, ensuring that every Hoosier family has access to safe and affordable housing. This includes advocating for investments in affordable housing programs, addressing discriminatory housing practices, and supporting initiatives that prevent homelessness.
