Stand4Change Pledge

Let’s make history on Stand4Change Day by standing together for five minutes, united against bullying on Friday, May 1st at 12PM EST.

Introduce the Pledge to your students.
“Bullying is known by many names. Whether it’s talking about someone in the hallway, terrorizing someone in person or on the Internet or committing physical violence; bullying hurts more than the person being bullied. It hurts everyone. Today we have the opportunity to stop bullying in its tracks.”
Ask your students to take the pledge by repeating after you:
I pledge to speak up when I see someone being bullied or treated unfairly.
I will be kind to my classmates, teachers and other people in my school.
I will reach out to help others who are bullied and need my help.
I, a student at (insert school name) pledge to be an Upstander.
And starting today, I will stand up and Defeat the Label.
Congratulate them for taking a stand against bullying.

Encourage your students to visit and sign up to stay involved or “like” us on Facebook/Twitter or Instagram.

“Each month, Defeat the Label will host exclusive giveaways for our fans that are part of our team standing up against bullies --sign-up now at or “like” them on Facebook.”

Additional Resources provides information from various government agencies on what bullying is, what cyber bullying is, who is at risk, and how you can prevent and respond to bullying.

Upstander is Defeat the Label’s monthly in school program. This 8 month comprehensive anti bullying program, puts a Defeat the Label representative in your classroom for one day each month to work with your students on a variety of topics. Students learn through group exercises, discussions and workshops.
