STAND UP AND TAKE ACTION against poverty and inequality
Stand Up, Take Action: Make Noise for the MDGs is a worldwide awareness and action-taking weekend for the end of poverty. Individuals and groups all over the world choose to create and take part in a variety of different community events - Stand Up events - every year to make their voices heard and move the planet that much closer to putting poverty in the history books.
Wear white, the symbolic color of the antipoverty campaign, and ask everybody attending your event to do the same.
Get people to stand up in a pattern that forms a word (e.g. " S-T-A-N-D-U-P”) or a symbol (e.g. the peace sign).
Wear T-shirts with some statistics (e.g. 1 400 women will die in pregnancy or childbirth today).
Wrap buildings, trees or statues with white bands.
