Standing Up

Can a bystander be neutral? In the face of injustice, is doing nothing a good option? At the Illinois Holocaust Museum on Friday, Teen Learning Lab students learned that choosing to be a bystander means choosing to be complicit to injustice, that there really is no such thing as an innocent bystander.  They were challenged to stand up to injustice by making the choice to be an “upstander” and not a “bystander.”  Many thanks to Board Member Lisa Limburg-Weber for organizing this profoundly meaningful field trip.
