The Stand By You Campaign started in April 2017 in the wake of the Brexit Referendum with a partnership between UCASU and the University against the rise in hate crimes.

Open to staff, students and the wider community, by wearing one of our chrome Stand By U badges, you are taking a pledge and commitment to ensure that our campuses are diverse and welcoming. We are a community that respects and celebrates one and other’s identities.

By wearing the badge you commit to three pledges;

STAND UP: To challenge inappropriate behaviour
SPEAK OUT: For positive change
SET AN EXAMPLE: Be inclusive

Badges are free, but any donations received goes towards supporting the students of the UCASU Liberation groups across our campuses to run their own events and campaigns.
