Three Faiths Forum
West Bromwich Albion FC is working with the Three Faiths Forum to help encourage young people in the Birmingham area to build good relations between all faiths, beliefs and cultures. The club’s legacy players, Cyrille Regis, Laurie Cunningham and Brendon Batson overcame racist attitudes to inspire a generation of black footballers and today this approach is enhanced to include the perspective of religious and faith-based tensions.
Schools are undoubtedly the place where young people can seek reassurance and strengthen bonds across communities. Yet tackling religious discrimination and racial prejudice is the number one issue of concern amongst young people. A charity, the Three Faiths Forum has spent the past ten years helping schools teach a more thoughtful approach when it comes to standing up to religious discrimination.
