Mayra, a star athlete, has been bullied for her looks. With her father's coaching she's learning about how to gain allies, to "look for the helpers."  He tells her that bullying decreases when students advocate for each other. So, Mayra finds an ally in Sebastian and together they form THE ADVOCATES CLUB, to decrease bullying in their school by having kids become allies and advocates for each other. As Sebastian overcomes being bullied with the help of others, he runs for class president. They help Sharif, the new kid, to deal with bullying he's faced. At the end of the play, the club is gaining many new members: students who want to help each other overcome the bullying in their school.
