Stand-Up

Stand Up MarchingStand-Up!  is a social justice group based out of Hazen Union in Hardwick. Lead by founder and activist Rachel Wilson, this student group is involved in social activism inside their school and in their greater community. Students are engaged in in-school activities such as a Cultural Myth-busting class where students learn to identify and stand up to racism and bigotry, while also having outside of school projects including the culturally diverse performance event, Raise Your Voice, and an afterschool Art Club where they can learn how to use the arts to create positive change and political awareness.
