About us

  • UNITED: We believe that racism can only be combated by unity. Since 1993, more than 560 organisations from 46 European countries have joined to make Europe a better place – for all. We have to stand together, be united to support the anti-racist and anti-discrimination vision and speak out against racism and the negative political tendencies in Europe! With an authentic and living movement, we can put antiracism into the mainstream of contemporary culture. Young people can and should be a part of the solution to the problem of racism. The movement can grow with their opinions and their visions of the Europe they want to live in.
  • FOR: We stand for unity and hope, fascists spread division and fear. Our vision is one of peaceful co-existence and intercultural respect all over the world. Together we want to build a Europe of tolerance and solidarity, a Europe of respect and perspectives. Diversity is for us more than just living our lives next to each other. Intercultural understanding and cooperation is our goal.
  • INTERCULTURAL: The best way to stop racism is to get to know each other and to learn from common experience. Every organisation is an expert in its field and in its region, all sharing the same goals. Strengthening these existing intercultural relations between civil societies, minority groups and political and economical actors is UNITED’s most important target. Diversity is a virtue, solidarity a duty.
  • ACTION: It’s the variety and creativity that makes UNITED campaigns unique. By linking local and national actions, we can generate European-wide solidarity and publicity. We can show that there is an enormous amount of people that believe in an intercultural open society.

European-wide campaigns against racism (21 March), in support of refugees (20 June), and against fascism and antisemitism (9 November) have been overwhelmingly successfully coordinated by UNITED for more than a decade.

UNITED also does effective lobby work at the European Commission, the OSCE, and the Council of Europe to make our voice heard. Raising awareness in all fields of life – that’s the key to defeat racism!
