Transforming remembrance of the past into a powerful movement for peace in the present.
Who we are
Together We Remember is a nonprofit organization
transforming remembrance of the past into a global movement to advocate for the victims of atrocities, genocide, and identity-based violence. We are a community of survivors, loved ones, and allies compelled to fight against hate and division until “Never Again” is a reality.
WHAT WE DO
Each year during Genocide Awareness Month in April,
we mobilize thousands across the globe to organize vigils in their communities that commemorate the victims of violence and honor the heroes who have confronted it.
WHY WE DO IT
"A million and a half Jewish children were killed. I was saved," says Sam Harris. "I owed it to them to do something."
Sam Harris is a child survivor of the Holocaust. It took five decades until Sam was ready to share his painful story. He now speaks to thousands of people a year about the atrocities of genocide. Discover more survivor testimonies and upstander stories by visiting the Virtual Memorial.
HOW WE DO IT
Unlikely alliances are formed by bringing together individuals, organizations, and elected officials to root for a collective goal: to open hearts and minds.
Students, scholars, teachers, survivors, and creatives educate and promote advocacy, both locally and globally.
We mobilize thousands annually to organize vigils in our communities and on social media. Our hope is this is not a one-day event, but Day One of fostering a global conversation designed to counter division, hatred, and violence.
By observing Genocide Awareness Month each April, we take part in a global month of remembrance and activism to end identity-based violence. Each year our message, impact, and community grows stronger.
