CAPE at All Together Now

All Together Now’s ground-breaking Community Action for Preventing Extremism (CAPE) project, formerly known as Exit White Power, was established in 2012 to plant a seed of doubt in the minds of young people who are attracted to white nationalism and white supremacy. Since then it has gone from strength to strength and remains the only project of its kind in Australia.

Since 2012, we have actively built relationships with former white nationalists, created resources for frontline workers and engaged directly with people who hold extreme far-right views to challenge their understanding of the world and help them to engage their critical thinking skills.

In 2016 CAPE was awarded funding from Multicultural NSW. As part of Multicultural NSW’s COMPACT Program, CAPE focused on increasing community awareness of the dangers of far-right extremism, and on providing training for frontline workers across the state. For the CAPE NSW project, All Together Now worked with the following partners: Youth ActionMacquarie University, and the Challenging Racism Project at the Western Sydney University.

In February 2021, All Together Now published a report detailing the results of the final two years of the NSW CAPE project (2018-2020), supported by Multicultural NSW. This report included an independent evaluation by Macquarie University which concluded that the CAPE NSW program had “in all cases met and surpassed” expectations, as well as established “a high degree of institutional expertise, experience, and capacity that is world-leading in the space of countering far-right extremism”.

Currently we are offering two countering far-right extremism workshops (“Identifying Far-right Extremism” and Responding to Far-right Extremism) that are based on the independently evaluated CAPE training program and are open to the public.
