Join DHS’s Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3) 8th Digital Forum on Prevention to learn how faith-based and affinity organizational leaders are crucial in preventing targeted violence and terrorism. This Digital Forum will be presented in collaboration with The Asian American Foundation (TAAF), an innovative organization that is working on the front lines of anti-hate and advocacy. This Forum will convene the top experts and professionals from a wide range of disciplines to engage and discuss emerging threats, harmful online activity, and innovative approaches that their sector can undertake to prevent targeted violence and terrorism, especially in today’s climate with the rise in hate crimes and white supremacist violence.
Faith-based organizations and affinity groups are an integral part of a whole-of-society approach to supporting local prevention frameworks, including addressing the issues of hate crimes and discrimination. This Digital Forum will highlight how faith leaders, houses of worship, advocacy, and affinity groups are vital partners in a public health approach to violence prevention. By partnering with the major faiths and affinity groups represented in America, local resiliency against violence and terrorism can be improved and strengthened.
