STAND Canada is a youth-led advocacy organization seeking to make preventing and ending genocide a cornerstone of Canadian foreign policy.
Since it was founded in 2005, STAND has become the leading organization in Canada for youth-led anti-genocide activism. With eight university chapters across Canada, STAND relies on the strength of its national membership to provide Canadians with the educational and advocacy tools that they need to take action against genocide and crimes against humanity.
STAND action includes Member of Parliament engagement, action alerts, on-campus events, campaigns, and youth empowerment. Currently, our organization focuses on conflicts in regions such as the Sudans, Iraq, Syria and Myanmar where there is an elevated risk of genocide or ethnic violence. If you want to take action and get involved, become a member, join a campus chapter, participate in a campaign, or donate to our organization!
