Key speaker at the Since 9/11 National Education Conference

In an era of extremism, Sara was pleased to speak at the conference about standing together for our shared values.  The title of her presentation was “Under Threat: Standing together for our Shared Values.”  Her speech resulted in an exclusive article for TES and for the Telegraph.

The outline of her speech focussed on the following:

We are facing critical times.  With the rise of both Islamist and far Right extremism, our society is increasingly becoming polarised.  The middle ground of shared values and compassionate co-existence is under threat.  Fear of the “other” is causing us to burn bridges rather than build bridges.  Now more than ever, we need to be actively vocal in defending our common humanity in this climate of fear and hostility.  Sara will explain how.
