When & Where
Remembering Srebrenica and the Association of Muslim Lawyers (AML)
Remembering Srebrenica is a British charitable initiative. It recognises that we have achieved a lot in terms of building a cohesive society here in the UK, but discrimination, promotion of hatred, extremism, and exclusion persist, and we must play our part, no matter how large or small, to create a better and safer society for all. We work with influential people to help strengthen British society by tackling hatred, racism and intolerance. Numerous volunteers have helped the charity organise hundreds of events this year throughout the UK to mark 20 years since the genocide, which was the biggest atrocity in Europe since the Second World War.
The Association of Muslim Lawyers (AML) has been active since 1993 and since its official launch in 1995 its membership and influence have been steadily growing. The organisation aims to raise awareness about human rights issues affecting Muslims and others, and to promote cohesion within the Muslim community and society as a whole. AML is committed to removing discrimination from society and ensuring equality for everyone. Find out more at www.aml.org.uk.
