We’re all about connecting people like you who want to bring about change. We provide training and events designed to help develop the skills you need to tackle inequality and injustice.

We can provide support if you’d like to start your own STAND Society and create a space on your campus to bring together students who have a passion for justice and equality and who want to make a difference.

WE BELIEVE IN
Standing against injustice and inequality in all its forms
People in Ireland and all over the globe are fighting for a more equal and just society. We are committed to sharing their stories and adding our voices to theirs.
Standing together with those who are oppressed
Millions of people worldwide are facing intolerance and persecution, fleeing violence and war, living in poverty and dying of hunger. We are committed to showing solidarity with them.
Standing up for a better, fairer world.
Our actions have the power to change the world. We are committed to exploring the ways in which we can all come together as global citizens to take action for social and environmental justice.
STAND is a not-for-profit initiative that was set up in response to the desire among students and young people in Ireland to learn more about global justice and how they can take action. Students have been taking part in our growing range of projects since 2003. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds but they all have one thing in common: the desire to bring about positive change in the world.
