Monday October 05 2020
On Thursday 1st October the MEND Yorkshire team welcomed Naz Shah, MP for Bradford West, on to our series MEND Report Yorkshire.
During this session, which was hosted by our volunteer Amina, Naz Shah shared her thoughts on being a Muslim woman of colour in politics and some of the experiences this has entailed. Naz shared her remarkable journey into politics and how central of a role religion features in her work.
Further to this, Naz also addressed the islamophobia she has faced as an MP as well as Islamophobia faced by the community in general, particularly in the time of COVID.
