In recent years, we have witnessed increasing levels of hate and violence, as well as growing fractures among communities across the UK. Online hate has proliferated through the ever expanding use of social media and more people are the objects of verbal and physical abuse on our streets. 

Integrity UK in partnership with Faiths Forum for London has developed a programme, ‘Beyond Dialogue’, that seeks to bridge divides, reduce hate and strengthen relations between communities aimed at Londoners. As part of Beyond Dialogue, Integrity UK will provide two training sessions to community leaders on the trends, tactics and key players within far-right extremism.  

What will the training cover?

  • Broaden the participants’ understanding on the far-right, including on hate speech, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism
  • Build the capacity of participants by sharing practice on how faith communities can collectively work together on community activism 
  • Discuss wider social context drivers such as integration, deprivation and inequality 
  • Discuss the role of the internet and social media companies around hate speech

When will the sessions take place?

The sessions will take place online via Zoom from early September.

How long are the sessions?

Each session will last approximately 2 hours.

  • Individuals of faith and non-faith backgrounds 
  • No age limit for participation, but encourage (18-34 years old) to register
