|Will U Stand||Tips & Facts||Heather Gere||2014|
We wanted to share STAND with stopbullying.gov in hopes that it could be shared broadly with US educators and at the upcoming Bullying Prevention Summit in August.
The Will U Stand movement was started by Charleigh Gere, a Vermont teen who wanted to encourage her peers to take a stand with one another to stop bullying. She worked with her aunt, a songwriter, to compose STAND, the Anti-Bullying anthem. The song encourages youth to be the one voice, unafraid, to help victims of bullying. To get others excited about making a difference, Charleigh invited the world to participate in a crowd-sourced music video for the anthem. Clips began pouring in from all over the US and as far fledged as Australia, Ireland, Canada and the UK. The heartfelt mashup offers a positive solution to bullying. It shows victims of bullying that they are not alone and that people care.
A direct link to STAND
STAND is the first crowd sourced music video created specifically with a purpose to help end bullying. In addition to the anthem (which is free for anyone to use and share), educators can download free bullying prevention posters and signage from the Will You Stand website.
