After taking time to understand the anxieties of people and communities, our local organisers work in communities where these concerns are most prevalent to bring people together around shared issues of concern, establish dialogue, and identify and empower community figures so they are better equipped to tackle fear and hatred themselves.
We also have a wider network of HOPE not hate volunteers doing similar work in their own communities. You can get involved in a way that suits you here.
We have trained thousands on how to have better conversations around divisive issues. Our approach focuses on shared values and empathetic listening to bridge divides.
When people work together to address shared issues, they can build relationships and coalitions that transcend differences, and create new communities in the process. Our organisers use a variety of means to bring people together, from social events to campaigning around local issues. By emphasising what we have in common and building shared identities in the process, we isolate extremists and build community resilience against hate.
