Three Rivers continues to tackle hate
08th April 2019
Three Rivers District Council stands with the rest of the world in the face of the recent horrific terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Terrorism is a scourge to humanity, and the worrying increase in attacks, across the World, including the UK act as a reminder for us all to double our efforts to challenge hate in all its forms and stand up to bigotry.
Terror attacks, wherever they occur in the world, have a devastating effect on everyone, in particular, our children and young people who are trying to make sense of the world in which we live. The Council provides training to local agencies to increase their understanding of the signs of vulnerability to becoming involved in terrorism.
