Schools are the place where one’s knowledge and foundations are built. Working with schools to deliver presentations on Islamophobia and educating the young people as well as the parents is a key way in which MEND aims to tackle Islamophobia.
Recognising it as an issue in our society and empowering the community to tackle it is our ultimate goal. Our volunteers from the East London working group have organised an Assembly as well as a parent-teacher workshop at Seven Mills Primary School to discuss some of the causes and cures of Islamophobia. There were roughly 15 parents who attended.
The South London working group was active in reaching Gatton Primary School to incorporate lessons on Islamophobia in a number of classes during anti bullying week.
To commemorate both Black History Month and Islamophobia Awareness Month, Outreach Ealing are proud to have presented this unique fascination and inspiring ‘Cinema Seminar’ on Malcolm X’s life. The children at William Perkin High school had the opportunity to understand and learn about one of the key figures of Black History Month and also Muslim identity.
Without doubt education of our youth is key to tackling every form of discrimination!
