After many months of hard work by the local volunteers, MEND Nottingham had its launch event in Nottingham on Friday 30th June, at the Lenton Business centre. The boardroom at the business centre was full with local people keen to learn about Mend’s work tackling Islamophobia. Police officers, council representatives, mosque leaders and local residents attended what was a highly engaging meeting. Throughout the hour long presentation many questions were asked about the nature of MEND’s work and the facts presented at the event.
At the end of the presentation it was clear that people really understood the level of the task ahead to reduce Islamophobia in the UK. They also went away with a clear path as to how this work could be undertaken. Many new partnerships were struck on the day between MEND and local stakeholders and individuals that will blossom in the years to come.
All in all a successful evening for MEND in the leafy University City that is the Jewel of the East Midlands.
