At STAND News, our team of editors and contributors believe in the power of sharing stories that celebrate and connect ordinary people doing extraordinary things to make the world a better place. (They also believe in the power of coffee and are familiar with the sound of a deadline as it whizzes past!). We welcome contributions from anyone with the desire to help bring about positive change. If you have something to share, we’d love to hear from you!

STAND Book Club

The STAND Book Club is a chance for students & youth around Ireland to hear from high level activists, campaigners, thinkers in Ireland about the books that opened their mind, made them mad, got them to see the world in different light and forced them to take action. Taking place in Books Upstairs on D’Olier Street on the third Monday of each month, it’s not to be missed! The first of our Book Club series takes place on Monday 20th August from 6-7pm with guest speaker Una Mullally. Una’s chosen book of the month is ‘Bluets’ by Maggie Nelson. Check out our Facebook page for updates!
