SAFE HAVEN - DCIF's HATE MOTIVATED RESPONSE PROGRAMME
REPORTING, RECORDING & RESPONDING TO HATE CRIME
What is SAFE HAVEN?
SAFE HAVEN is DCIF's hate motivated incident response project. It uses online reporting mechanisms for reporting and recording faith-based hate motivated incidents through engagement with faith communities, civil society,relevant government and intergovernmental agencies.
How does SAFE HAVEN do this?
Firstly, SAFE HAVEN project team provides training to designated members of faith communities, civil society and public sector frontline staff on recognizing, acknowledging and responding to racism and religious hatred.
This year DCIF and Edinburgh Interfaith Association have come together to mark World Refugee today in the shadow of two ongoing crises.
We pray for them, we pray that they will not be forgotten as we deal with our own crisis, and pray that our own experience may help open up hearts to understand why people are forced to live their homes.
‘Together in Hope - An Interfaith Encounter in Response to COVID-19’ is a joint reflection by a wide range of ecumenical and interreligious practitioners coordinated by Prof. Jude Lal Fernando of the Irish School of Ecumenics in collaboration with the Dublin City Interfaith Forum.
DCIF in the Community
Every year in September, DCIF holds an interfaith festival, MEASC, that celebrates Dublin's unique culture and diversity. This year we had a lovely turn-out in spite of rainy weather, and some of the highlights are captured in this video.
