T-shirts with the phrase “I Won’t Stand For___” are customized with whatever social concern is most impactful for you (ex. bias, violence, etc.). The idea is to show that we can all care about a variety of issues while still standing as one community against all social ills. Inspired by the USA Network’s Characters Unite initiative of the same name, Skidmore’s I Won’t Stand For has grown steadily over the last four years. Anyone who has or receives a t-shirt, as well as those who have not had the opportunity to make a t-shirt are invited to come to the Atrium at 2:30pm to take a large group photo. That photo will be posted across campus as a reminder that this community values the just treatment of everyone.
