Are you the bumper sticker people?
Yes. A Polish artist, Piotr Mlodozeniec, designed the first “Coexist” logo, incorporating the three Abrahamic faiths, to participate in an artist competition held by the Museum on the Seam. This original design has been changed and manipulated many times since. The classic Coexist Bumper sticker was designed by Jerry Jaspar. All the above-mentioned representations are developed and trademarked for the use by Coexist to further understanding in divided communities around the world.
What is Coexist?
Coexist’s mission is to build social cohesion by sourcing high quality products from conflict zones around the world. By bringing together communities with a history of conflict, we strengthen the bonds between them and create a new generation free from prejudice, hate, and violence. Coexist grew out of the Coexist charity to support the livelihoods of communities that we have worked with around the world. Profits are reinvested into the Coexist charity to support projects around the world.
What does the Coexist charity do?
The Coexist charity is on a mission to advance social cohesion through education and innovation. Coexist was created to address the crisis of understanding that tears at the social fabric of societies around the world. Globalization has outpaced our understanding of one another, creating divisions that plague communities with prejudice, hate, and violence. Coexist works at the faultlines of these conflicting cultural identities to strengthen the bonds that hold a society together through a sustainable model of people working and learning together.
