PUSAT KOMUNIKASI MASYARAKAT ( KOMAS ) invites all to participate in :

                Training on Education for Non-Discrimination

The popular non-discrimination workshop that began 3 years ago have traveled to Penang, Ipoh, Kuantan, Johor and of course KL. It has received resounding success with participants whom have gone on to do their own non-discrimination mini-workshops, dialogues, changes of policies in workplace. Most importantly all have walked away with new awareness of self and racial identities and how that relates to the larger world.

 They are having their last workshop of the year in Sungai Petani, especially for the Northen Peninsula friends of Perak, Kedah, Penang and Kelantan; but if you are from KL and are also interested to attend, they won’t discriminate either. 🙂 Do help spread the word as the closing date is soon and there is only limited space.
