Grants given to these 6 Somali groups in MN to counter violent extremism

Terrorism in today's world comes in many different ways and utilizes every single kind of communication available, leaning heavily on social media. In order to combat this threat, 6 prominent Somali groups in Minnesota have been given a grant worth $300,000 in order to combat the threat posed by groups such as ISIS online. The aim of the donation is to give young Somali-Americans more opportunities and to prevent them from feeling disenfranchised and vulnerable, which would allow them to be easily recruited by online jihadists.

Some of the grant money will be allocated to youth development program, employment and educational opportunities, and health services outreach. An additional amount will be earmarked to develop group facilities to handle larger amounts of youth and to provide community mediation services. Read the Entire Article
