It’s back to school time, and in addition to choosing the right outfit and buying the right supplies to overstuff backpacks, some students are committing to banding together and saving the world. United to End Genocide‘s college and high school student-led division, STAND, is gearing up for a new year of inspiration and action. There are already over 100 chapters in schools across the country, and more cropping up now, as the movement deepens in activity and intention to put a stop to the world’s mass atrocities. The program trains advocates and grassroots activists to put the spotlight on, and eventual end to genocide.
Make sure the students in your life know about this movement, and can educate themselves, find out more, and take a STAND for our future. Empowering youth IS our future.
