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.

The same sessions will be delivered on different dates and venues to ensure that we reach a wide range of members and leaders from our diverse communities.

Two hour free sessions will be delivered in evenings on:

Monday 26th November 2018 - between 5 – 7 pm, in Committee Rooms 2 & 3, Brighton Town Hall
