Bradford Council with partners has organised an #IAMBradford online conference to mark and raise awareness of Islamophobia.
Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM) is a national campaign that was established in 2012 to deconstruct and challenge the stereotypes about Islam and Muslims. The campaign, held every November, aims to raise awareness of the threat of Islamophobia and encourage better reporting of incidents to the police.
Muslims are an inherent part of British society working across many professions, from senior positions within the UK Government to frontline roles helping and supporting the public during the Covid19 pandemic. Unfortunately Muslims are still suffering the highest levels of hate crime of any faith community in the UK.
Our #IAMBradford conference will explain some of the issues still being faced by the Muslim community national and locally. It will also showcase some of the amazing work being undertaken by our diverse Muslim community across the Bradford District.
As part of our local #IAMBradford events and activities, we have arranged an online Islamophobia Awareness #IAMBradford Conference on Friday, 26th November 2021 at 10.30am – 12.00pm.
We hope that you will be able to join with local and national speakers to understand more about the affects of this crime and the positive stories that people are building for cohesive and integrated communities that are peaceful for all.
