About HOPE not hate Charitable Trust
HOPE not hate - our goal
HOPE not hate exists to provide a positive antidote to the politics of hate. We combine first class research with community organising and grassroots actions to defeat hate groups and to build community resilience against extremism.
Hate is often the consequence of a loss of hope and an articulation of despair, but given an alternative, especially one that understands and addresses their anger, most people will choose HOPE over hate. Our job is to expose and undermine groups that preach hate, intolerance and division whilst uniting communities around what they have in common.
We aim to take a part in building a society that celebrates rather than scapegoats our differences.
HOPE not hate structure
HOPE not hate seeks to challenge and defeat the politics of hate and extremism within local communities, building resilience against the politics of hate and fear, at a national and grassroots level. In order to maximise our contribution to the debate and comply with all UK legislation, HOPE not hate operates via two separate and distinct legal entities, through which we deliver a range of activities and services.
