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.

The We Stand Together charity promotes the three main aims of the campaign:

1. To celebrate our differences

2. To fight hatred and intolerance

3. To build a safer and stronger country

We are committed to promoting community cohesion but will not shy away from difficult issues.

We are liaising with the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Office and GMCA in relation to actions from their Cohesion Report, ‘A Shared Future’, that recognised the key role of our #WeStandTogether charity in raising awareness of social cohesion.
