As part of Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM) the Building Bridges project of Hamara is holding a half-day conference & exhibition in Leeds on the 12th November 2014. The purpose of the conference is to facilitate citywide discussions around strategic priorities for tackling hate crime, with a particular focus on anti-Muslim hate. The conference & exhibition will be an excellent opportunity for delegates to learn about manifestations of Islamophobia, current trends and statistics and both city-wide and national strategies to counter anti-Muslim hate.
