At the end of last spring, UC STAND launched a blog to connect with other National STAND Chapters throughout the States. STAND is a national student organization (STAND stands for Students Taking Action Now) and the student-division of Genocide Intervention Network and our vision is to empower individuals and communities to fight genocidal violence and other humanitarian rights. STAND was originally born to fight the ongoing violence in Darfur, Sudan but now also campiagns against other humaritarian crimes worldwide. In the past UC STAND has led successful advocacy and fundraising campaigns against the violence in Darfur and recruitment of child soldiers. Every semester we invite distinguished speakers and we also work with other social justice groups on campus to raise awareness about campus issues.
