I’m passionate about youth education and countering racism and extremism.

YOU CAN HELP ME BY

It would be so helpful if members of the Conduit community and beyond would be willing to undertake the Solutions Not Sides training session for leaders, as it will help them make a better contribution to debates on the Israeli-Palestinian issue so that we can reduce racism towards Jews and Muslims. We at Solutions Not Sides would also like to collaborate with anyone working in conflict resolution and dialogue to share best practice and learn from one another. Finally, I’m always looking to be put in contact with schools and faith communities, as well as with any fundraising networks.
