Why attend an IAM event?

With at least 7,000 anti-Muslim hate crimes a year, systemic discrimination against Muslims in the workplace and relentless media negativity, there has never been a more important time to attend an IAM event and to learn more about tackling Islamophobia. Islamophobia affects us all, just like racism and anti-Semitism. IAM unites communities to tackle Islamophobia. Sign up for an event below and learn more about the challenge at hand.

There are currently over 120 events confirmed across the UK for IAM which are being loaded up day by day on the Calendar below.  If you can’t find an event close to you now, please revisit this page in a few days and hopefully one will be uploaded close to you.  Alternatively, why not host your own event by using the resources at http://islamophobia-awareness.org/resources/ and log your event at https://www.islamophobia-awareness.org/log-your-event/?  Thank you.
