NIACRO, in partnership with Rural Community Network (RCN - core funded by the Community Relations Council), are offering participants the opportunity to engage in an online 6-week community education programme called Get Real.

This programme explores those most at risk of perpetuating hate crimes, involvement in the criminal justice system and restorative practices. The programme challenges prejudice, misunderstanding and intolerance on sectarian, racial and other discriminatory views; by creating opportunities for honest expression and cultural learning. Participants are supported to explore differing attitudes and behaviours, to deal positively with diversity and make positive contributions towards a shared and cohesive future.

The programme will be delivered through six 2-hour sessions starting Wednesday 11 November and running every Wednesday until the 16 December 2020, from 10AM – 12PM. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please contact Teresa McKernan on 028 8676 6670 or email teresa@ruralcommunitynetwork.org.

This is a regional programme therefore anyone from NI can register their interest in taking part, we particularly welcome those living in a rural community.
