Rise and Stand is always working hard to raise awareness and end bullying. It’s very clear to us that the only way to reach teenagers and children is to show them that standing up against bullying & spreading love IS cool! Somewhere along the lines people started to believe, being a good person was lame. After interviewing hundreds of teens and kids, we noticed the #1 reason young people don’t stand up or speak out is because the actions are deemed “not cool.” Raising awareness against bullying can actually get you bullied we’re told by an outstanding about of teens.
We are here to tell you rising and standing against bullying IS cool! Anytime you stand for something positive you believe in, it’s cool.
Rise and Stand put together the #RiseandStandChallenge in efforts to raise awareness globally. With your help, we CAN do this! People ask us daily how can they get involved and help our organization. Here is your chance!
