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 faiza@westandtogether.org.uk and james@westandtogether.org.uk.

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?

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.
