This year is the 21st anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide and the United Kingdom’s Srebrenica Memorial Week runs from Sunday 10 July to Sunday 17 July 2016. Our theme to mark this milestone anniversary is ’21: Coming of age – time to act’.
A girl in Srebrenica who was wearing a headscarf was harassed by school children who told her to take it off. The fact that young individuals possess such prejudice is a cause for concern & underlines the scale of the challenge that exists https://t.co/OA3YLyYY4i.

Our thoughts are with the victim of the horrific attack at Regents Park Mosque. The fact this happened in a place of worship that the Muslim community see as their sanctuary is truly devastating & shows why we must work hard to counter the hateful narrative that prevails.
There was a time when I dreamt of them—my father, my family, my friends. I would wake up in tears, but also with the warm sensation that I had just seen them, that we had spoken. Now, I never dream of them. Instead I dream only of monsters. https://t.co/Ssx3s6fi08
