Causes and Cures Workshop at NEU

Causes and Cures Workshop at NEU

Categories: Past Event Articles

Friday June 23 2023

On the 3rd of June MEND North delivered a workshop at the NEU Conference in Leeds. Members of the NEU from Kirklees and beyond attended the event.

The session started with a discussion on the APPG definition and the importance of organisations to adopt the definition. Attendees highlighted that victims of Islamophobia are not solely Muslims, rather those that are perceived to be Muslims are attacked and abused.

Subsequently, the importance of reporting any hate crimes, including Islamophobia are crucial to help tackle this issue, bring the perpetrators to justice and to have a clear image of the scale of the issue. A video of a case study was played to the attendees and they were astonished by the effects of islamophobia on young children.

The session ended with a Q&A on how teachers can support young children and ensure they are safeguarded from islamophobia.

Thank you to the NEU for organising and hosting us!
