PSA Transcript

How do people hate so much that they can hurt someone?

Or insult somebody's beliefs…

Or tell someone what they can do…

Or who they should love…

It makes no sense.

We all have the same hopes; we all have the same dreams.

There's so much more that unites us than divides us.

Because if we don't stand for intolerance and hate, we can be the difference.

I won't stand for it.

I won't stand for Bullying.

I won't stand for Ableism .

I won't stand for Homophobia.

I won't stand for Racism.

I won't stand for Hate.


Religious Intolerance.

I Won’t Stand For…

Each of us, whoever we are, wherever we live, can do something to fight intolerance and hate. All we have to do is say, simply, I won’t stand for it!

The “I Won’t Stand For…” movement is about sending a message to the world that no one should stand idly by in the face of racism, bullying, religious intolerance, sexism, homophobia, ableism, or any other form of discrimination.

The PSA campaign features USA Network stars – including Matt Bomer of WHITE COLLAR, Peter Gallagher of COVERT AFFAIRS, Dule Hill of PSYCH, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres of SUITS – and people from across the country, from all walks of life, sending the message that they won’t stand idly by in the face of hate & discrimination.

Join the movement! Share your story of what you won’t stand for by customizing your own “I Won’t Stand For…” photo at and spread the message to your family and friends.
