Nine ways students are taking a stand for human rights

No one is too young to make a difference.

Thanks to your support, these young upstanders are proving exactly that. Through the Be an Upstander program, these students learned how to recognize injustice, know their strengths, and use those strengths to create change. They also created projects that bring awareness to the issues they are passionate about.

The students featured are just some of the more than 70 who shared their projects at the annual Be an Upstander showcase at the Museum this past May. We hope you are inspired by their creativity, passion, and desire to make the world a better place.
