Show your support

The orange heart represents compassion for people fleeing war and persecution. Inspired by the refugee nation flag, and the colours of a lifebelt, the heart symbolises hope and kindness. By recreating and sharing the heart on your social media channels you can show your support for refugees. 

 

Join our call for a kinder, fairer and more effective approach to supporting refugees by sending a message on social media using the hashtags #WhoWeAre and #TogetherWithRefugees. There are some suggested messages and graphics in the link below.

 

You can also send messages to congratulate and cheer on organisations who have joined the coalition. See who has joined on our members' page

Show your Heart

If you can’t get to an event during the Week of Action (18-24 October) there’s other ways to show your support for a more compassionate approach to refugees.

Why don't you take one of these simple actions here.

  • Add an orange heart to your Twitter or Facebook profile;
  • Share this gif and ask friends and family to share it too. Add your own message. If you have a Twitter account you can share it from here;
  • Print this window sign showing you stand in solidarity with refugees and put it in a public facing window. If possible, take a photo and share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtags #TogetherWithRefugees #RefugeesWelcome

Shareable graphics and messages

Here you can find some gifs and films that you can share to help publicise the  Together With Refugees coalition. There are also some other digital graphics here for you to share on your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. And here are some messages of support on YouTube from Joanna Lumley, and Channel 4 sitcom, 'Home', co-stars Rufus Jones and Youssef Kerkour.

Follow us on @RefugeeTogether. Search for the hashtags #TogetherWithRefugees and #WhoWeAre.
