Need a way to address bullying or intolerance in your school? Defeat the Label’s Stand4Change Day is JUST what you are looking for! Here are 5 reasons why your school should Stand4Change on May 5, 2017!
1. Unite with Schools Worldwide
Stand4Change Day is Defeat the Label’s yearly call to action. This event allows students to take part in Defeat the Label’s impactful, interactive anti-bullying activities at their own school while joining millions of students around the globe, to physically take a stand against bullying in their classroom. Registered schools receive a customized digital toolkit and video message from a Defeat the Label Ambassador. Over 5.4 million students stood up with Defeat the Label in 2016 to take a stand against bullying. Join us as we stand together again on May 5th, 2017 at 12 PM E.S.T.
2. Create a Safe School and Community

Spread the message through social media and share it with the other schools in your district so they can see all the amazing things you do!
3. Teach Your Students How to be Upstanders
An Upstander is a person who stands up or helps someone in need whether they are a victim of bullying or if they are just being treated unfairly. Upstanders recognize that they have the power to make a difference in their school and community. Once you register, look for a special, “How to be an Upstander” section in your Stand4Change Day 2017 Toolkit.
4. Encourage Students to Make a Difference in Someone’s Life
We all can make a difference in someone’s life- Let’s make sure those students know that they are not alone. Sometimes, a random act of kindness, a smile or simply asking “How are you?” can turn someone’s day around. The Stand4Change Day 2017 Toolkit will contain ideas to help spread kindness and support throughout your school.
