As we've seen in our Upstander series this spring, "upstanding" takes many shapes. We've shared stories that range from the very visible Nipsey Hussle to nameless "allies" making themselves visible in a march against hate, from individuals who have dedicated their work to shaping or re-shaping their community like Jessica Smith-Peterson and Arianne Edmonds to students just beginning to leverage their voices for change. What does "upstanding" look like to you?
It's not too late to join us for our Upstander Celebration, Thursday, May 23, 2019 to honor upstanders from Southern California schools who are making a positive impact on their school campuses and beyond!
