We empower victims of Islamophobia by helping their voices to be heard, and by protesting sources of negative stereotypes of their religion.
We believe education is a way to defeat ill informed opinions of Islam, whether this be through social media, at one of our fundraising events, or elsewhere. We communicate with people at all levels from governmental to grassroots.
The Leeds MEND Working Group was launched in January 2015, one of the earliest in the UK. It has seen success in its activities, and has engaged on multiple levels with the universities, media and community.
