Together for Humanity
Together for Humanity is an Australian multi-faith organisation that fights prejudice and hatred at its source with positive experiences of diversity. We are Muslims, Christians, Jewish and Indigenous people and others who enjoy being together. We realize that we can't agree on everything but we manage our differences by increasing awareness of the values we have in common, respect and of course - a touch of humour. Through leading by example we help Australia deal with difference in a true celebration of our diversity.
