Faith Leaders & Small Businesses

Discussion Class

Get informed about ways to hold difficult conversations that bring both people closer, rather than making them feel more distant and hostile.


Seek media literacy training and instruction on how to recognize red flag indicators for radicalization, and information to identify hate groups.


Build partnerships across civil society that support communities targeted by hate-fueled violence. Professionals and community leaders across civil society – such as faith leaders, school administrators, government workers, and small business owners – play an important role in building resilience to radicalization and extremism in their communities.


Leverage trusted community members to deliver messages around social and community cohesion and inter-group belonging. This might include nurses, firefighters, first responders, local activists, business owners, or artists.


Reduce divisive political rhetoric in every realm of community life. Faith leaders, small business owners, and other community leaders play a big role in disrupting dynamics that can pull communities into conflict– and offering an alternative that promotes trust and cohesion.
