Speaker Series (Youth)

The Speaker Series by OnePeople.sg is a platform to discuss racial and religious issues within a safe space. These are issues which may have a profound impact on the ground and our diverse community. For the upcoming session, participants will visit the Resource and Counselling Centre of the Religious Rehabilitation Group (RRG). With the ISIS threat extending its reach across the globe into Southeast Asia, Singapore and her neighbours now face several inter-related threats, including terrorist attacks and radicalisation. How has this affected our security, and what have we done to combat terrorism? The visit will include a dialogue on the threats of terrorism and how it impacts social cohesion. Participants will get to have a dialogue with a key member of RRG where participants will better under stand the work that they do and the resources available.
