Upstander Project

People need to be heard!

My Goal

My goal coming into this project was to raise awareness for bullying/cyberbullying. I have a tweet out asking people for help to raise awareness, you should tweet out too!

Empowering Others With No Voice

Empowering others with no voice means speaking up for others who can't because are too shy, or just can't be heard in general. People can actively give others a voice by raising awareness for bullying, or anything related to bullying, and or help people get back on their feet and making them feel stronger than before.


An upstander, to me, is a person or people who stand up for cyberbullying, or bullying in general and help overcome that bump in the victim's life. Basically, someone who sees a wrong and acts upon to counteract that wrong.
