Preventing Criminal Radicalization through Youth Empowerment
(by invitation only)
This summit is brought to you by several organizations that serve and represent Calgary’s 60,000 Muslims. Our primary objective from this summit is to improve the way we participate with law enforcement, government, academia, media, and other stakeholders in preventing crime and promoting youth empowerment. We believe that by working together to empower youth we can prevent criminal radicalization.
We believe that through authentic partnerships and a shared vision for a safer Canada we can begin to overcome the multiple challenges ahead. Furthermore, you will discover first-hand the research, training, counselling, and community development activities our Muslim youth experts are engaged in on this matter. In short, we are intimately aware of the issues facing our growing and diverse Muslim community and invite you to join us in protecting and empowering our younger population.
