About this event:
Muslim Engagement & Development (MEND) would like to invite you to the launch of Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM) to come together and stand against Islamophobia in Wales post-Brexit.
An 89% increase in hate crime was reported across 30 UK police forces in months before 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 Wales and what can we do to unite against any increase in Islamophobic incidences post-Brexit?
This event is sponsored by Leanne Wood (AM).
