Defining the Moss-Side Community
Wed 22 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Moss-Side is a ward based in inner city Manchester and is proud of being a diverse area, where people from all over the world are welcome and where people contribute to making not only Moss-Side a great place to live and work but the city as a whole
This Seminar will look at the behavioural and structural roots of radicalisation/Islamaphobia – both religious and that on the far right as well. The presentation will also address the issue of racial profiling of communities– all of this has consequences for social cohesion and community harmony.
In order to help us understand and debate these issues Hideaway Youth Project in partnership with Manchester City Council have arranged a short presentation which brings in experts, from across the UK to debate the this topic and provide a better understanding of the impact of these issues have on its residents and the whole country.
Gain practical insight into how Far Right groups work, how racial profiling is used and develop your understanding of Islamaphobia.
Participants at the ‘Defining the Moss Side Community’ presentation will gain an understanding of:
An overview of the growth and nature of radicalisation.
The process of radicalisation and the targeting of vulnerable groups.
How some people from the Moss Side community are profiled and labelled.

In 2015 I formed Small Steps Consultants to raise awareness of the dangers of Far Right extremism, using my unique personal experience of 20 years involvement within the Far Right movement.
Now part of the solution and not the problem I use my in-depth knowledge to provide analysis and support to counter Far Right extremism.
