Students from Luther College, Iowa, USA were hosted by the MEND Leicester WG on Wednesday 25th January 2023.
The students were on a European tour, visiting a variety of organisations and communities, as part of their global engagement programme.
MEND volunteers welcomed the students at The City Retreat, where they were presented with an informative presentation on the UK Muslim community and the challenges brought about from discrimination and islamophobia.
The students asked engaging questions and had an impressive understanding of some of the wider issues such as counter-extremism policy.
It was a pleasure to have students from Luther College and have the opportunity to discuss these important issues and gain a better understanding across the board.
