Our community is filled with upstanders — individuals who stand up for others and their rights. They fight against injustice and unfairness, and they use their character strengths to inspire action and become the best of humanity today.

Many people don’t realize that our museum at historic Union Terminal not only tells the stories of the Holocaust, but also features examples of the best of humanity. The Humanity Gallery vividly highlights individuals who used their character strengths – leadership, forgiveness, perseverance, teamwork, and so many other attributes – to better their communities in lasting ways.

There are countless ways you can be an upstander. One small thoughtful act can make a difference.

Do you know someone who embodies the spirit of an upstander? Nominate them to be featured as the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Upstander of the Week. We’ll feature their story on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Their actions can inspire someone else to give back, help others, and become an upstander by activating their character strengths.
