We are undoubtedly living in a time in which we are the most globally connected to one another than ever before through the use of social media … yet why at times does it seem we are also equally so disconnected?
We have all witnessed and been touched in one way or another by the events gripping our social screens over the past few months and most recently the past few weeks. We are being thrown into extreme SADNESS by being exposed to scenes of injustice to innocents across the globe. ANGER at the senseless loss of live, WARMTH and JOY at the countless everyday heroes going out their way to aid strangers in need and Confusion. CONFUSION when the blame falls on a religion whose foundation stems from peace; good character and humanity towards its fellow man…
Its time to TAKE OWNERSHIP of this debate, be proud of who you are, confidant to say these acts of terror are nothing to do with religion #NotInMyName.
In this workshop we aim to cover finding your identity, dealing with Islamophobia in the media, refuting ISIS and the media and cover Internet safety.
