Bring You Can Sit With Us To Your School

In lieu of the ten year anniversary of Mean Girls, we are reminded of how harmful the phrase You CAN'T SIT WITH US is. This type of bullying mentality is what is hurting our youth, especially young girls. As you remember, in December of 2013, we launched our anti-bullying campaign, You CAN Sit With Us and we have been overwhelmed with the positive reaction and support we have received from many of you. From buying the tanks to our first school/sorority bringing it to their campus, we are confident that this campaign will hit home for many and drive change.

So, how can you bring You Can Sit With Us to your school?

First, email us for the official You Can Sit With Us pledge. Signing your name toward a cause is one of the biggest ways you can make an impact.

Second, spread the campaign phrase, "You Can Sit With Us" in your behavior and your attitude. Invite someone you wouldn't typically sit with to join you for lunch. Talk to someone who you wouldn't typically feel compelled to talk to. Extend a helping hand when it is needed.

Though not mandatory, wearing a You Can Sit With Us tank to spread the message is one of the quickest ways to drive curiosity while making a huge statement. To order a shirt visit this site and to learn about bulk orders please email us at

We encourage you to be the change. Check out our video for more inspiration on this campaign and feel free to share it with friends and family.

Video Premiere: You Can Sit With Us

Special Thanks: Taylor Freeman/Freezy Film Productions, aMaes Photography, 224 Apparel, and our beautiful extras!

Bul·ly·ing, verb.  The participation in any intentional behavior that causes physical, emotional, or social damage, through the abuse of power.

Nobody deserves to be bullied.  Since when was it ever cool to be a 'mean girl'?  Well, it certainly isn't cool in our book.  From name calling on social media, spreading rumors about your peers, to harming someone face to face; bullying has become a widespread problem.  Shattering someone's self esteem certainly isn't funny, and is something that is not to be taken lightly.  Ladies and gentlemen, why do we do this to one another?  It's a whole lot easier to be nice than it is to be mean.  As Plato said, "be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."  You never know what issues someone is dealing with in their personal life, big or small.  Life brings us challenges, but why intentionally make another person suffer?  Targeting anyone as the subject of abuse not only shows a lack of compassion, but a lack of humanity as well.  

One thing is certain- bullying is an enormous issue.  Saving the world from bullying is a pretty large feat (although we're up for the challenge).  So, what exactly can you do?  We're starting small.  We're starting with the people we know and love.  Start within your circle of friends, your sorority, your family; anything you're involved in where you have felt the sting of someone being bullied.  If you're witnessing bulling, stand up for the victim.  If you're the target, stand up for yourself.  And if you're the bully... well, it's never too late to turn things around.

We're on a mission to stop the cycle of hate, and start spreading the love.  Join the movement.  Come and grab a seat, YOU Can Sit With Us.

This is our first step in a cause we hold dear to our hearts.  Next, we want to hear from YOU.  We ask that you please share your bullying experiences with us; whether you've witnessed it, been the target, or been the bully yourself.  We want to hear you, we want to hear your voice.  Please leave your comments and a contact email below, so that we can get in touch with you for future posts regarding our You Can Sit With Us campaign.  Thank you!
