The student-led movement to end mass atrocities.


STAND chapters are located on high school and college campuses across the country. Through educational events, creative actions, relationships with local congressional offices, and participation in national STAND campaigns, chapters raise awareness and take action on our conflict areas.

STAND chapters and affiliated organizations receive support from their Field Organizer, who is the go-to person for information about STAND’s campaigns and resources to build and strengthen chapters. As a grassroots organization, chapters are the essential element of our student-led movement to end and prevent genocide and mass atrocities.
