The Midwest is one of the most active regions in the country.

In 2018, the StandWithUs Midwest high school programs reached 5,497 students.

On college campuses, our StandWithUs Emerson fellows presented 115 programs reaching 17,779 students.

In the community, we partnered with over 100 organizations to present 30 events, reaching 3,700 diverse people from Jewish, Christian, and Hindu communities in 8 states.

Our outreach included a rally by 75,000 Hindus in Calcutta, calling for India to move its embassy to Jerusalem.
