  • Would you like to:
    • Share knowledge about your community?

In partnership with the RADEQUAL campaign, we’re facilitating a series of workshops for community members in Burnage, Levenshulme, Longsight, and Moss Side, exploring topics related to conflict, hate, prejudice, and extremism; how communities can respond; and the skills and techniques you can use to do so.

The RadEqual campaign is Manchester’s response to building community resilience to prejudice, hate, and extremism.

Get involved by choosing the session or sessions you would like to attend. They’re all online and free – join in from home! For more information on the workshops and to join in, follow the Eventbrite registration links below.
