Why get involved with Islamophobia Awareness Month?
November is Islamophobia Awareness Month. Through a series of events, dialogues and other activities, we'll be shedding light on this growing problem and finding ways to tackle it together. We'll be highlighting Islamophobia awareness all month so there's plenty of opportunity to get involved and make a difference.
"Islamophobia is the fear of, or prejudice towards, Islam and Muslims, and whilst always having been a problem, it has spiked in recent years. Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM) which begins in November, is aimed at raising awareness and tackling the issue.
To combat this rise in racial and religious discrimination, our students' union and societies have got a dynamic and informative series of events - keep a look out for more to follow, on our website and on Twitter, using the hashtag #IAMkclsu!"
