What won't you stand for?
The USA network brought its Characters Unite bus to the University of Virginia grounds. It's part of a yearlong campaign to combat hate and discrimination.
"People just rave about it. They thank us," said Gina Stefani, a tour producer. "They say how important it is. Many of them have stories that they share, which is always touching. We're happy to support the cause."
All through the month of February, the bus will stop at college campuses and give people the opportunity to "stamp" a personalized T-shirt to take a stance on an injustice that's personal to them.
"They are very thankful. They ask us where we're going, what we're doing with this," tour producer Andrea Frankos said. "Pretty much just thanking us the entire time, and they're very appreciative of what we're doing."
Everyone on the bus can take a picture that will be posted on the Characters Unite website.
