SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Students Together Opposing Prejudice (S.T.O.P.) will start its annual program on January 9, 2013. S.T.O.P. is a an interfaith initiative teaching teens how to confront stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination. The program is a six-week curriculum, targeted to middle school students.  The goals of the S.T.O.P. program are: (1) to heighten participants’ awareness about issues ofprejudice and discrimination and about the many forms it takes; and (2) to give students strategies to confront prejudice and discrimination. The sessions take place in the participating houses of worship. Through short teachings at the start of each session, students learn about the similarities and differences among the faith traditions. The participants appreciate that cultural, racial and religious tolerance comes about through recognition of the value of every individual and the celebration of every person’s uniqueness.  They also learn that our communities are enriched by our diversity.

The sessions are made up of a variety of activities including skits, videos, games and small group discussions, many led by S.T.O.P graduates. Participants do not have to belong to a religion or live in Shrewsbury. The program is free. S.T.O.P. meets for six sessions every Thursday evening January 9th through February 13th, from 7:00pm to 8:45pm. S.T.O.P. does not meet over February vacation week.
