No Place for Hate: Islamophobia Awareness Month
November is Islamophobia Awareness Month (IAM), which aims to raise awareness of the national rise of Islamophobia and encourage better reporting of incidents to the police.
In Tower Hamlets, we believe that it is everyone’s job to stand up to Islamophobia and raise awareness of the ways it can present itself. If you would like to take a stand against Islamophobia, and other forms of hate crime, please sign our No Place for Hate Pledge.
The council takes hate crime seriously and we work alongside our partners to identify perpetrators, increase awareness of what a hate crime is and make sure people know how they can report incidents.
