Want to make a difference in today’s world? Stand up with STAND! 

STAND is a student-led movement to end mass atrocities. Our mission is to empower individuals and communities with the tools to prevent and end genocide. From an innovative Leadership Team to a network of thoughtful and change-oriented student activists across the country, we act against genocide and mass atrocities worldwide. 

As an organization we are here to build, organize, and empower a grassroots network of students and young people committed to advocating for the prevention and mitigation of genocide and mass atrocities wherever they may occur. We prioritize inclusivity in our youth-led movement. 

STAND has advocated for: 

  • The No-Fly Zone in Libya by making calls to Susan Rice
  • Lobbied Congressional offices nationwide to help pass the Darfur Peace and Accountability Act
  • Helped pass national divestment legislation -- the Sudan Accountability and Divestment Act (SADA)

So join us and help make this world better and work to end all current genocides because we are better together, stronger together, and we STAND together!
