Why attend a MEND event?

With at least 7,000 anti-Muslim hate crimes a year, systemic discrimination against Muslims in the workplace and relentless media negativity, there has never been a more important time to attend a MEND event and to learn more about tackling Islamophobia. Anti-Muslim hatred affects us all, just like racism and anti-Semitism. MEND unites communities to tackle Islamophobia. Sign up for an event below and learn more about the challenge at hand.
