Nominate an Upstander
Upstanders are people who stand up for themselves and others. They harness their character strengths to meet their moment and pursue justice, both great and small, inspiring others to do the same. In our Humanity Gallery, you’ll draw inspiration from local upstanders who’ve brought positive change to our community.
The Upstander Awards recognize individuals in the region who embody what it means to be an upstander. From leading community-wide service projects or standing up to a bully on the playground to standing up for others in the face of injustice, upstanders represent the best of humanity today. The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center defines an upstander as someone who stands up for themselves and others. They harness their character strengths to meet their moment and pursue justice, both great and small, inspiring others to do the same.
