Remembering Srebrenica is a British charitable initiative. It recognises that we have achieved a lot in terms of building a cohesive society here in the UK, but discrimination, promotion of hatred, extremism, and exclusion persist, and we must play our part, no matter how large or small, to create a better and safer society for all.
The lesson from Srebrenica is that no society is invulnerable to prejudice and intolerance. We must all remain vigilant against these forces, and take positive action to build stronger, more resilient communities.
Our vision is a society free from hatred.
We work to achieve this goal by:
- Bringing communities together to REMEMBER Srebrenica through organising commemoration events in the UK.
- Taking people on our ‘Lesson from Srebrenica’ education visits programme to LEARN lessons from the survivors of the genocide.
- Creating Community Champions who PLEDGE to stand up to hatred and intolerance in their communities.
