Interview at BMHC on MEND & the Islamophobia Awareness Month Campaign
On Wednesday 2nd November, MEND North was invited to the British Muslim Heritage Centre (BMHC) for an interview on various topics related to MEND and Islamophobia. This interview was organised to mark the start of Islamophobia Awareness Month and discuss how organisations and individuals can get involved.
The North regional manager was the guest for the interview, where he introduced MEND and the various activities carried out by MEND to tackle rife islamophobia in society. The definition of Islamophobia was a focal point of the interview and why MEND promotes the APPG definition and why having a definition is important.
Furthermore, statistics were shared on Islamophobia, which led to the hosts asking questions on what causes islamophobia and what individuals can do to combat it.
The final segment of the interview focused on the Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM) campaign, the theme of tackling denial and the importance of participation.
The hosts thanked MEND for the interview and the insight into MEND’s work.
Thank you to all involved in organising this interview.
