ReDirect works with community groups and individuals to increase our community’s overall ability to prevent radicalization. The ultimate goal is to make sure that when young people are vulnerable to radicalization, they have a safe and healthy environment to debate, discuss and learn about the harm of radicalism and violence.
Through presentations, meetings with community leaders, social media and traditional media, we are equipping Calgarians to help recognize and prevent radicalization in youth and young adults, which makes all individuals in our city less vulnerable.
Our team also works with organizations and community groups to help them develop policies and procedures to properly respond when they encounter individuals who are vulnerable to radicalization.
Finally, our education efforts help people learn where they can turn to for help if they or someone they know is being radicalized.
