In collaboration with MEND, join us discussing Islamophobia in more depth with a focus on changes needed to advocate and tackle Islamophobia, by Muslims and non-Muslims hence the importance of allyship will be highlighted. Other than that, the forum will also discuss how the hijab has become a symbol of political and European Islamophobia, and the impacts it has caused on Muslims in the UK. The audience will also be informed of guidelines to seek out help if they have experienced Islamophobia or if they see someone who has. This will be an interactive forum where the audience can join the discussion.
