How the community can help to combat discrimination

Updated: Apr 29, 2020

There are many individuals and groups within a community can help to combat and stop discrimination. Some of these include:


Youth clubs

They can organise events to help young people get to know and make friends with people from different religious and cultural groups. This helps young people to develop understanding, tolerance and acceptance of differences.

Schools

They can give young people the opportunity to mix with other students and encourage inclusion and working together. They also run LLW classes where students can learn about and appreciate other peoples' cultures.

Celebrations and festivals

These can be organised by the local council to help raise awareness of cultural diversity within the community. They can help people learn about and experience other cultures and promote tolerance and understanding.

The police

The police can work with local community groups to help prevent racism/sectarianism in the community
