ABOUT US

Founded by high school students Ayla Gordon-Mandel and Angelita Chew, Young Women Stand Against Prejudice (STAND) empowers young women 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 women with the proper tools and knowledge to forge change. STAND creates a space for highschool-age girls to take political action against the systematic oppression and discrimination in America—making a difference in their communities and nation.
