We are Delighted to introduce our Project Workers for our Community Cohesion Project (funded via GMP from proceeds of crime) Faiza Chaudhri and James Edlington
They are helping organise anti-discrimination sessions in schools, colleges, youth and community groups and development of local #WeStandTogether groups and projects. Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
You can get involved with improving your neighbourhoods by running a cohesion event during #WeStandTogether Month.
You can submit events for the first #WeStandTogether Month, which is happening in May, on this site. Please tell us what you are planning for your local community and submit it here
Your event should be anything that brings together all the diverse people in your local community. Invite people from all faiths, ethnic backgrounds, disabilities, sexual orientations, ages and wealth.
Want to keep it simple? Why not just invite everyone to #HaveACuppaTogether?
We had an excellent Difficult Dialogue event on Wednesday 3rd March looking at the North/South Divide and COVID-19.
Our thanks to all those who participated, the International Centre for Integration and Cohesion as well as our partners across Greater Manchester.
We look forward to holding our next Difficult Dialogue on 'Homelessness After Lockdown' in May 2021
If you have any ideas for future topics, or wish to partner with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

About We Stand Together
The We Stand Together campaign started in 2015 when former Greater Manchester Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy used it to bring Jewish and Muslim groups together after the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris.
The hashtag #WeStandTogether was prominent after the May 2017 attack at Manchester Arena. #WeStandTogether was also adopted as the slogan for the Manchester Evening News peace campaign launched that Autumn.
The charity is based in Greater Manchester but is a national initiative.
