What is Take A Stand?
It is time to stand up for Europe and, more precisely, for the whole world.
To create a movement that promotes social cohesion in our society as well as awareness and tolerance towards all cultures, genders, races, religions, sexual orientations, skin colors and countries of origin. To encourage people to participate in political and social activities, to advocate peaceful dialogue, humanism, tolerance as well as mutual understanding and to make the world a better place for each individual and for all of us.
Who should advocate for it?
Everyone who speaks out for the European idea and its values. Everyone who believes in peace, inclusion and dialogue as opposed to fear and exclusion. Stand up for your views Get involved! Become a member of a political party and/or cast your vote in local or federal elections.
