Whether it is an extremist group seeking to promote hatred and division, or a local issue that threatens to divide people, every threat presents an opportunity to bring people together, build relationships, and strengthen our communities.  

This workshop combines community/power mapping tools with exercises on tactics and strategy to explore how we can respond positively to provocation in our communities from extremist groups. How can we respond in a way that builds relationships across communities and isolates an extremist minority?

 “Community members from across Birmingham come together for a listening event to talk about local issues following provocation from anti-Islam extremists Pegida."
