About this Event

Together Against Faith Hate

Tower Hamlets Inter Faith Forum are holding a free event to tackle faith hate crime during Inter Faith Week 2019. The event will focus on raising awareness and features guest speakers, stalls hosted by local organisations and facilitated group discussions that everyone can take part in.

Speakers:

Dr Daniel Nilsson DeHanas, Senior Lecturer in Political Science and Religion at King's College London: Populism and Its Religious Side: Populism is on the rise around the world. However, the religious dimensions of populism have usually been neglected. In this talk, Daniel Nilsson DeHanas will explain what populism is, how it has ‘religious’ aspects, and what the implications of this are for issues such as faith hate crime.

Benedicta Dikeocha, No Place for Hate: What has been achieved so far? What more can be done? How can we all make Tower Hamlets No Place for Hate?

Fiyaz Mughal, Founder of Muslims Against Antisemitism (MAAS): Fiyaz will be speaking on why he as a Muslim is fighting antisemitism and how breaking down barriers through meeting people of different faiths is vital to educating people and breaking down stereotypes.

Tea, coffee and a light buffet will be available.

How to get there: From Bethnal Green Underground Station (Central Line), take the Museum of Childhood exit. Proceed along Museum frontage to the first corner which is Old Ford Road. Turn right into Old Ford Road and No.21 is on the other side of the road, just past York Hall.

Buses Nos. 8 -106 - 254 - 309 - 388 - D3 and D6.
