Xchange Scotland's “Spread the action!” project aims at supporting and inspiring practitioners and group / community leaders to tackle sectarianism and discriminations and to promote empathy in an appropriate and relevant way to their practice and the groups they’re working with. For us, it seems especially important to keep communicating to build understanding, not to hurt. To communicate to exchange ideas, diverse ways of being and points of views, not to be right. To communicate to develop and to learn, not to punish. To communicate to share what we care about, not to escape of or to create fear.
Our next Training session will take place on Thursday 13th October (11 - 5pm) at the Kinning Park Complex (G41 1AQ) and it'll contribute to this year's Hate Crime Awareness Week (8th - 15th October). We want to invite YOU to this day of reflecting, sharing and activism. We’ll do so by sharing a day together exploring these issues and how they may affect our communities, and by sharing skills and resources adaptable and relevant in their everyday practice, to facilitate delicate discussions about sectarianism and prejudice.
