STAND, the student-led division of the Genocide Intervention Network, envisions a world in which the international community protects civilians from genocidal violence. At its core, our mission is to empower individuals and communities with the tools to prevent and stop genocide.

Born out of the fight to stop the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, STAND is devoted to creating a sustainable student network that actively fights genocide wherever it may occur. We seek to unite students around the world in a permanent anti-genocide constituency.

Since it’s founding in 2004, STAND has become the clearinghouse for student anti-genocide activism and has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, Politico, Newsweek, The Washington Post, The Sudan Tribune, Rolling Stone, National Public Radio, CNN, and in hundreds of other publications. With more than 850 chapters in middle schools, high schools, and colleges in more than 25 countries worldwide, STAND is truly leading the movement to end genocide in our time.

    I just graduated from UNCC in International Studies/German and had a minor in Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights studies. I would love if still possible to join STAND. I am trying to get accepted into the Ph.D. program in Public Policy so would be a student again next fall. This semester I have ample free time and would love to help with projects and work with the organization if possible. Thank you!
