Building an anti-Islamohpbia movement in the UK
Meeting 2: Who has power? How do we build power?
Post-Brexit racism - both on the street and in institutions - has alarmed many. As racist street attacks are coupled by new, divisive legislation and deepening discrimination in education, housing, health and welfare, the movement against Islamophobia and racism has to build fast, strong and smart fight for peace, justice and in our society.
Young Muslims, deeply affected by much of this climbing racism, must be at the centre of this.
This weeks meeting focusses on power mapping: who has power? who can make decisions that change our lives? how to we build power as a community? how do we link with others to become a powerful source for change?
Bring your curiosity, ideas and enthusiasm, get together with facilitators, activists, researchers and artists, and let's answer these questions and build this movement.
Please note: this event is open for Muslims (of all genders and backgrounds) aged 18-25. If you are not Muslim, but are keen to join the movement, please join us on Saturday 22nd October for our general campaign meeting.
