Our aim is to create solutions and attack matters without the need of violence or weaponry. Broken Chains supports those who are in need of help, by being the louder voice to those who are afraid and only whisper. We can only progress with this by educating others on each matter.
We organise events and stands to create awareness and to make a statement. One of our methods of educating is done is in a form of case study.
We understand that it is difficult to change an opinion without giving a right reason to do so, in saying that providing case studies has proven to be a good educational tool. It gives one the opportunity to acquire a better understanding of a particular subject and make their own decision about how they feel on the issue we believe that the strategies we use to cover each topic definitely contribute to individual changes.
Vast amount of research is done over a period of time, to ensure that all areas of the subject is discussed
In our first case study "Reading in between the lines of homophobia" we covered areas such as, history, law, religion and media. We discussed what the bible does and doesn't say about homosexuals and homosexuality, including personal testimonies of life experiences of others.
Included was also an analysis of how the media contributes to homophobia, also the route of homophobia itself. With each case study we strategically plan how we can create public awareness by working with the media such as TV, Radio, Press and Internet. We also campaign to encourage tolerance, for example by organising conferences and meetings, and working with the media and trying to involve those who are powerful in society.
We believe that people of all beliefs and every walk of life, should be united as one to help make these issues history by contributing to the basic needs of others such as freedom, happiness, safety, health and education.
We need to take a stand for what we believe in, and inspire others to do the same.
