Not In Our Town

Just got word of this. Pass it on.
The School of Education at Queen's University, Belfast and Facing History and Ourselves are running a special seminar to provide an opportunity to discuss community responses to racism and sectarianism. This is part of our response to the recent hate crimes in Belfast and beyond.

The seminar will include a showing of the PBS film Not In Our Town which chronicled the response of a US town to hate attacks and encouraged the development of community responses to hate crimes. This will be followed by an open discussion on how we might respond to racism and sectarianism, with particular emphasis on the role of educators and youth organisations.

The seminar will run from 12.30pm to 2.00pm on Wednesday July 8 in the Cathcart Room, School of Education, 69/71 University Street.
