BUILDING BRIDGES is one of twelve projects funded by the Joseph Rowntree Charitabe Trust across West Yorkshire, to promote racial equality and address Islamophobia.
BUILDING BRIDGES is aimed at addressing the concept of Islamophobia across the city of Leeds. The project aims to do this by implementing a holistic approach which will build confidence and capacity within Muslims, while simultaneously raising awareness and tackling the stigma attached to the faith in the indigenous community.
The project will directly involve members of the community in the planning and delivery process who will work collaboratively with a number of key stake holders to address Islamophobia. BUILDING BRIDGES aims to achieve this through looking at four specific themes:
Strengthening Shared Identity
Islam & the West
