MEND Black Country takes a stand against Race and Religious-based Hate!

MEND Black Country takes a stand against Race and Religious-based Hate!

Categories: Past Event Articles

Monday June 21 2021

MEND Black Country and Stand Up to Racism organized a peaceful protest at West Park in Wolverhampton due to a recent incident where a Muslim boy was targeted.

The team across Wolverhampton and Walsall came together to show solidarity against islamophobic and racist attacks on our streets.

Our Working Group Chair, Obaida Ahmed, gave a powerful speech, to which she highlighted the issue of race and religion-based hate and how we must stand together against it.

She also informed the protestors about the Islamophobia Response Unit (IRU) and how victims of Islamophobia can access the free legal advice service when needed. You can read more about the work of the IRU here: http://iru.mend.org.uk/
