Founded by Ayla Gordon-Mandel (she/her) and Angelita Chew (she/her) while in high school, Stand Against Prejudice (STAND) empowers high school students in the fight against bigotry and inequality. Whether the unjust policies be on the basis of race, disability, gender, or sexual orientation, we equip young people with the proper tools and knowledge to forge change. STAND creates a space for high school students to take political action against the systematic oppression and discrimination in America—making a difference in their communities and nation.
