Let’s use peer pressure for something positive and bring attention to bullying, a serious issue that affects
everyone – bullies, victims and bystanders.

WHEN? Let’s make history on Stand4Change Day by standing together for Eive minutes, united against
bullying on Friday, May 4 at 12 PM EST.

WHERE? Every classroom, in every school in America.

WHY? If students in every school across the nation “Stand4Change” on May 4, they will not only set the
record as the largest group of people standing for a single cause at one time, they will draw national attention
to this critical issue.
