How to unleash a new era of progress
Our partners are showing there’s more that unites us than divides us — and that free speech and collaboration are key to moving America forward.
Deep divisions and polarization are encouraging censorship and making society’s biggest problems worse.
Unite people to discover solutions — not in spite of but through our differences.
Supporting partners who protect free speech, identifying common ground, and building on it.
25,000 groups protected from censorship, 8.7 million students freed from speech restrictions.
The United States is deeply divided. Trust is falling and censorship is rising — threatening free speech and our future as a diverse and peaceful society.
Stand Together and our partners are tackling this crisis — protecting our civil liberties and empowering people to build a society where we embrace our differences to overcome our challenges.
Civil liberties are the answer in uncivil times.
America has always been filled with a diversity of views. It’s one of the biggest reasons for our country’s success — our differences help us find new and better paths forward.
Yet voices on the extremes increasingly claim that different opinions and beliefs are a dangerous thing. It’s splintering America into opposing camps, with disastrous results.

Of colleges and universities restrict free speech
People seem increasingly unwilling to work, talk, or live with those who don’t hold their views. Worse, they’re increasingly willing to silence those who don’t think like them. It’s a vicious cycle of division that constantly drives people further apart and destroys our desire to work together to solve the problems we all know exist.
Of Americans know we can still unite despite our differences. They’re right.
Fortunately, most people know something’s wrong. More than three-quarters of Americans recognize that unity is still possible in this age of division. And on the overwhelming majority of concerns, common ground already exists.
Stand Together is working alongside partners to surface that agreement — and promote the communication and collaboration that are key to our country’s continued progress.
Our partners share the fundamental belief that a diversity of views is good for society. Together, we reject attempts to silence people or mandate beliefs from the top-down. Rather, we protect free speech and open the door for people to unite and use their different perspectives, spurring progress from the bottom-up.

Polarization and division exist in every part of society, and our partners are tackling this crisis wherever it exists. It’s a comprehensive approach that enables us to make a lasting difference, and in time, transform the culture.
Together with our partners, Stand Together is building a movement to protect free speech, foster peace, and move past the polarization that’s tearing America apart.
Our partners are making great headway. They’re helping communities to bridge divides over racial justice, students to learn tolerance, and policymakers to come together to protect free speech and build an inclusive society, to name a few examples.
Charities and nonprofits protected from censorship and intimidation
College students protected from unconstitutional speech restrictions
We have our work cut out for us, given how deep current divisions run. We’ll keep growing and strengthening our partnerships to end this crisis and empower others to communicate and collaborate on the toughest issues. America’s future progress depends on it.
No problem is too big to solve, so long as we have the courage to collaborate.
