The student-led movement to end mass atrocities.

STAND’s 15 Year Anniversary Fundraiser!


Join us on April 25th for a celebration of 15 years of youth empowerment, civic engagement, and genocide prevention advocacy – and help us invest in the next 15!

The event will take place at Hawthorne at 1336 U St, NW, Washington, DC from 6 to 9 PM.

Purchase of a ticket at any level will provide you access to food and drink specials throughout the event. We ask you to pay at whatever level you are able. If you are unsure as to what level you should contribute at, or if you would like to learn more about our decision to move to a sliding scale for events, scroll down.

Thank you – we can’t wait to celebrate with you!

Sliding-Scale Tickets
Name on ticket:

What is a sliding scale and why is STAND using it?As a youth-led organization, we are deeply aware of the financial hardships that can keep individuals from attending community events such as this. We want to make sure that this event is accessible to the entirety of the STAND and DC human rights community, while also raising much-needed funds for STAND’s operational expenses. We are grateful for whatever you are able to give!

What level should I give at?

This is a personal choice! We have put together some guidelines, based off of several economic justice resources.

Consider paying less if you:

  • are supporting children or other dependents
  • are unemployed and/or have significant debt
  • are a current student or recent graduate who is supporting yourself and paying your own educational costs
  • have medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • receive public assistance
  • have immigration-related expenses,
  • are returning from incarceration or are undocumented and have been unable to access employment opportunities
  • are an unpaid community organizer

Consider paying more if you:

  • own the home you live in
  • have investments, retirement accounts, or inherited money
  • travel recreationally
  • have access to family money and resources
  • have a relative degree of earning power due to level of education or other privileged status

The scale is intended to be a map, inviting each of us to take inventory of our financial resources and look deeper at our levels of privilege. It is by no means a comprehensive list, but is intended to serve as a starting point as we consider economic justice as a component of our work. While we ask you to take these factors into consideration, please don’t stress about it. Pay what feels right to you.

Note: We welcome comments and suggestions regarding the language we are using to discuss economic justice issues. Please feel free to be in touch with us at
