National Culture Week™ 2023

Change The Culture

The focus of National Culture Week is to spark a conversation among youth about the need to change the culture from one of cruelty and exclusion to one of kindness and inclusivity.

National Culture Week provides an opportunity for youths to share and learn from each other’s diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences ...not judge them because they look different.

STOMP Out Bullying kicks-off National Culture Week by hosting Culture Shock, a livestream Culture Week Panel discussion facilitated by celebrity influencers from the media, sports, entertainment and social media worlds. 500,000+ students worldwide attend the livestream each year.

Participate in National Culture Week!

How National Culture Week™ Began

national-culture-week-diversity.jpgFounder and CEO Ross Ellis was walking down the street when she heard teenage boys talking about a terrorist in their class, She asked them about this and they said their classmate was a terrorist because he wore a turban. She explained to them that people wear turbans because of their culture and that did not mean they were a terrorist."

That's when Ross Ellis developed National Culture Week.
