Following the incident in Sri Lanka, the city’s One Voice Partnership strongly condemns this act of violence on innocent people.

The targeting of churches during Easter Sunday services and hotels in Sri Lanka has deeply shocked and saddened us all.  We send our deepest sympathies to the families of those who have lost their loved ones, those who have been injured, and all affected communities.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

A number of vigils are being planned in the city to remember those who have been killed or injured in the attack in the two mosques, in Stanwell and in Utrecht.  It is also an opportunity to remember all those killed or injured elsewhere in the world in similar violence.

Everyone is invited and welcome to join the vigils.

Understanding And Challenging The Far Right

On our communities’ request, we are offering a number of training sessions to raise awareness of Far Right Groups, their narratives, and techniques used to recruit people.  Community Members and Faith Leaders will hear from people who were formerly involved with far right groups to understand the working and dangers of far right, identify and support individuals vulnerable to being drawn into far right activities, and counter far right ideology.
