According to advisor Jeremy, “The Stand Up Charter was started last semester here at Stony Brook to raise awareness about the damaging long-term effects of bullying and homophobia. Ben Cohen, former English Rugby star, created the Stand Up Foundation in response to the death of his father, who was killed while intervening on behalf of an employee who was being harassed for his sexual orientation. The group pieced together an anti-bullying campaign video this semester, which Ben posted on his personal Facebook page, as well as his Stand Up Foundation page. Ben’s foundation is AWESOME and his support of the Stony Brook Stand Up Charter is awesome as well.” Great job to Jeremy and the students who participated in and worked on the video!
