Take the Upstander Pledge

Inspired by Carson’s standard, the Upstander Pledge is a commitment to be an active bystander: someone that will trust their instincts, overcome fear, and take action to help others.

I will trust my instincts and have the courage to help others.

I will overcome the fear that keeps me from taking action to intervene.

I will speak up for others and hold my peers accountable.

I will stand up and embrace responsibility for the wellbeing of those around me.

I will live with urgency and be a role model in upholding this commitment.

Bring this lifesaving movement to your campus community. Ask us how!

Carson was among friends when he died from an alcohol overdose. Every year we lose young lives to preventable alcohol poisoning and hazing tragedies, but if those present had been educated and trained to help when it mattered most, Carson and many others could still be with us today.
