Derek Poole, The Link Centre, spoke at the launch of Community Relations Week

Derek Poole, a long time activist for peace and better community relations, said he has been around too long.

He doesn’t need more of the same – Imagehe needs new things.Derek acknowledged that the good work being done would be impossible without what CRC has given. And what has the Community Relations Council given? Money? Yes, but so much more.

Vision.

Support.

Analysis.

Friendship.

Policy.

And I say again – so much more!

Derek said that we cannot build a future on tolerance. It isn’t enough. We need rich and deep engagement.
