Council of Christians and Jews Victoria: Training to tackle hate speech

Share

The Council for Christians and Jews of Victoria (CCJ), in partnership with the Online Hate Prevention Institute (OHPI), invites communities to participate in a new program to tackle hate speech.

The program will provide in depth training for representatives from communities to help them recognise and respond to racism and religious vilification.

The program will include facilitation training and material to allow representatives to run introductory sessions on tackling this problem for their community and people nearby.

Training will take place at St Dominic’s Primary School, 145 Highfield Road, Camberwell, Victoria, 3124 from 2 pm to 4 pm on Sunday, 10 November.

Working together, religious communities can help counter this hate by increasing awareness of the problem and training people to safely respond when faced with racism and religious vilification.
