About this event:
Muslim Engagement & Development (MEND) and Muslim Council of Scotland (MCS) would like to invite you to the reception of Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM). Come together and stand against Islamophobia.
An 89% increase in hate crime was reported across 30 UK police forces in the months prior to the EU Referendum and 10 police forces saw racially or religiously aggravated offences rise 50% or more in the three months following the Brexit vote.
What effect will Brexit have on Muslims in Scotland and what can we do to unite against any increase in
Islamophobic incidences ?
