Community Relations Week takes place from May 20 – May 26 with over 180 events across Northern Ireland on the theme Expressing Identity – Addressing Division.
Urging people to get involved, Judith Cochrane said: “Community Relations Week is a great opportunity to actively challenge the division in our society. It encourages us to realise that community and voluntary organisations in partnership with government, can learn the skills necessary to build relationships and hope for the future.”
Event organisers who spoke at the launch included representatives from Forthspring Inter Community Group, Youth Action NI, the Northern Ireland Community for Refugees and Asylum Seekers, Cultúrlann and Shankill Women’s Centre.
