What’s with all the meanness online? What’s going on? The UPSTANDERS explores cyber-bullying, bullying among friends, families, co-workers, and the brain science behind it all. The film highlights new laws and programs already making a difference in schools and shows us how to make a difference together to create systemic change.
The UPSTANDERS is about resilience and the power of connection to end bullying and provide resources, tools, and hope.
The UPSTANDERS is the 3rd film in the trilogy including ANGST and LIKE by IndieFlix.
