STAND UP is an award-winning multicultural performing group of students from Los Osos High School that performs an original play called “Experiences.”Their performance confronts the issues of prejudice, racism, homophobia, and religious intolerance while making audiences laugh, cry, and think.Most importantly, they will help your school find solutions to intolerance and hatred on your campus through positive means.
7 Where are we now, and how can STAND UP help? In an age of standardized tests and API scores, diversity has taken a seat at the back of the school bus.Unless we are proactive, we face criticism for being reactive to the next racial emergency.To thrive as a state, we must embrace and promote diversity and acceptance.
8 “Experiences” Will Help Your School Reduce Racial and Cultural Conflict Allows students to see the dangers of prejudice, racism, and homophobia from other students’ experiences, rather than a textbook or a lecture by a teacher or adult.Following the play, student performers answer provocative questions addressing your school’s cultural environment.STAND UP will help establish a STAND chapter on your campus.Helps your campus become proactive by teaching students and teachers how to address issues of discrimination, rather than be reactive to them.
