The wristbands are black and white, representing right from wrong, as most moral dilemas present themselves. However, there is grey when you mix black and white together. Sometimes the grey must be guarded against when making decisions by using perspective taking tools I teach through my presentaions.

Brass is an internationally recognized Professional Holocaust Education Public
Speaker, and the daughter of a Holocaust Survivor. Brass has 30+ years of
experience working with public and private schools, and other venues, with
presentations made to branches of the U.S. Military, including Peterson Air Force
Base, Fort Carson, NORAD, and NASA. Recently she was invited to speak on an
education panel in Warsaw, Poland, at the 26th Annual Conference of The
World Federation of Holocaust Child Survivors and Descendants, and again
in Cleveland, Ohio, and Las Vegas, Nevada. She was asked to join the Executive
Board of the Conference and spoke as well in 2014 in Berlin, Germany as well as
in Bunde, Germany.
innovative Power Point Programs for Middle School and High School students
which are customized for 1 hour, 2 hour or 2-1/2 hour presentations,
age-appropriate for each. Brass’s unique ability to connect with young people
in delivering a program which focuses on Holocaust Awareness and Education,
personal accountability, and an anti-bullying campaign, has received praise and
recognition from school administrators, teachers and students. Brass shares the
story of her Father’s survival in the Krakow Ghetto, and in four concentration
camps. She weaves in the history of the Holocaust while connecting with
students and providing the message that they choose to accept personal
accountability for making good decisions within their own schools, and
throughout their lives. Through audience participation, Brass asks students to
be Standupsters™ and not bystanders, and to understand the power they have in
making decisions which affect the quality of life of their fellow students. She
is a published author of “I Am a Standupster”, sold world-wide since 2012.
Brass includes the use of a large Standupster poster
which students are asked to sign, to demonstrate their commitment to not be
bystanders within their schools. The poster remains on-site to remind students
that they have the ability to hold themselves to a higher level of personal
accountability. Brass has created silicone rubber Standupster bracelets which
students are drawn to. Bracelets can be purchased and provided to students by
the school, or can be offered at the end of the presentation, directly to
students for a small fee. Brass provides a list of questions for teachers to
ask of their students, who then write her thank you letters explaining what the
presentation meant to them and how they were personally affected by the program,
making this a Core Curriculum experience. According to principals and teachers,
this literacy piece that allows connection between students and the speaker,
assists in reducing incidents of bullying within schools and dramatically
increases school spirit and pride.
