Humanity Rising is a movement to create a better world through service. We empower and reward students for changing the world.
Our partner for the Anti-Bullying Leadership Challenge is Stand for the Silent. Stand for the Silent is a national anti-bullying organization, led by Kirk Smalley, who lost his 11 year old son Ty to suicide caused by bullying. He is saving lives across the country and together we can help him.
Humanity Rising and Stand for the Silent have teamed up to challenge you to help put an end to bullying and change our world. Individuals and organizations in your community are coming together to support you too.

More About Stand for the Silent
Started by a group of Oklahoma State University students in 2010, Stand for the Silent was a powerful response to the death of Ty Field-Smalley. Ty took his own life after being suspended from school for retaliating against another student who had bullied him for over two years. Stand for the Silent exists as a platform to allow Kirk and Laura Smalley to share Ty's story and offer education and tools that will prevent this tragedy from happening to another child and family. After visiting thousands of schools and speaking to over 1,000,000 students, their message continues to have a critical focus...change kids' lives and bring awareness to bullying and the real devastation it causes.
