Georgia Strategic Alliance for New Directions and Unified Policies (STAND-UP)

STAND-UP operates on the principle of seeding communities with movement-building skills. Its goal is to identify and elevate grassroots leadership, an investment in people that creates durable capacity; that is, human infrastructure tailored to the community in which it operates. That infrastructure represents permanent capacity to confront issues, as well as the political savvy, networking ability, and communications know-how to handle them. It enables marginalized communities to effectively confront policies and trends that threaten their wellbeing.
