UNITED is opening the opportunity for delegates of UNITED supporter organisations to become members of UNITED’s Youth Advisory Board.
Today, the whole World is concerned with the lurking shadow of the Covid pandemic and a war in Europe and the constant decline of human rights of vulnerable groups and a constant attack on our dignity and privacy. Tomorrow, the effects on the economy, on the societies, on the psychological health of the persons and more populist, racist, nationalist and fascist political agendas will be visible.
Migrants, ethnic and religious minorities are and will be among the most affected by the health and economic consequences of the crisis. Our mission is to echo their voices through a youth lead, grassroot, diverse and anti-racist network of organizations all over Europe.
Our network is also evolving and growing UNITED – the already biggest grassroots antiracist network in Europe – is recruiting new forces for its advisory board.
Join us in our struggle for a more social, more fair, more equal UNITED world!
