Media Advisory on the second annual rally to stand up for the other.


Racial bigotry, religious persecution, Antisemitism, Islamophobia or any other form of hatred cannot be wiped out unless each and every one of us confronts it within our own circles of family and friends. Silence is seen as consent. It takes courage to stand up for the other!

So you are invited to sign this pledge and invite others to do the same. We plan to circulate it in many languages and as widely as possible using social media.

Help spread the word and get millions to join the campaign globally.
