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.
