Being an "upstander" rather than a "bystander" in bullying situations requires courage and risk, but individuals or groups who take the initiative to be "upstanders" – those people whom we describe as Anti-Bullying Heroes – become an impetus for change in schools and communities. Every year we recognize those individuals or groups with our Hero Awards. Nominations deadline is March 1, 2017.
