Islamophobia Awareness Month

KCLSU President

November is Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM), a 10-year campaign founded by a group of Muslim organisations aiming to shape a society free from Islamophobia in all of its forms, to showcase the positive contributions of Muslims as well as raising awareness of Islamophobia in society.

This year the theme for IAM is denial and to mark the end of the month, on Thursday 8 December at 2 pm join KCLSU President Mohd Yasir Khan for a talk with the Dean of Cambridge Muslim College, Dr Timothy Winter (Abdul Hakim Murad) about Islamophobia in the West.

As a Students’ Union that is home to Muslim students, KCLSU has a zero-tolerance policy against harassment, bullying and discrimination. We, as a Student Officer team, condemn every form of aggression on the grounds of religion and we support IAM 2022.

We also encourage any students who are struggling with discrimination – in any form - to email us via [email protected], so that we can provide the relevant support.
