We’re kicking off our new webinar programme, and so pleased that our first session will be a conversation with Hadiya Masieh – founder of Groundswell Project, an inspirational community peacebuilding project. Sign up here (places free but registration required and places are limited) – it’s at 6.30pm UK time on 17 March.

Hadiya has over two decades’ experience in countering violent extremism and understanding how to challenge hate – and a unique perspective given her own experience as a former member of an extremist political organisation.

Today, Hadiya runs Groundswell Project, a pioneering initiative that works in communities to map both extremist and pro-peace groups on the ground, build a diverse coalition to tackle root causes , and then amplify local voices through Groundswell Project’s reach with local and national news and on social media.

We’ll be talking to Hadiya about her story, her work, and how people working to support larger us rather than them-and-us dynamics can learn from Groundswell Project’s insights. To reserve a ticket, click here.

We’ll be posting news of more events soon, so do keep an eye on Larger Us’s EventBrite page for details.
