On Tuesday 16th November, GM=EqAl (Greater Manchester) hosted an Islamophobia Workshop to speak to their members about different aspects of society that have particular importance to the Muslim community and how policy can work to build more inclusive environments in these spaces.

During the session, attendees were taken through four different areas: Education, Political Participation, Workplace, Crime & Policing. Members of GM=EqAl were able to discuss what issues they saw in each of these different areas, how these might impact the Muslim community and what actions can be taken, from a policy perspective, to create posittve change – in-keeping with the #TimeforChange theme of IAM this year.

One of the key take-aways from the workshop was the need for different organisations to form collectives to tackle the same issues. Following this workshop, it will be great to see how recommendations and conversations are converted into action.

Many thanks to GM=EqAl for inviting in the IAM Team and we look forward to continuing to work with the members of the alliance in the work that they do.
