iERA: Against Racism – Against Hatred (Video)
The Islamic Education & Research Academy (iERA) launched its anti-racism campaign called “Against Racism, Against Hatred” in Brixton, a suburb in south London, UK. The community event commenced at the Brixton Recreation Centre with a motivational talk from iERA’s chairman, Abdurraheem Green. This was then followed by training of 20 or so attendees from Hamza Tzortzis, Head of Education and Research at iERA on how to give dawah and approach members of the public with a survey questionnaire on racism and Islamophobia. All in all, the day was a success as the survey idea (first pioneered by the Myriad Foundation in Manchester, may Allah bless them and reward their efforts) worked very well in opening up friendly dialogue and discussion. iERA hopes this will be the start of bigger and better activities challenging the evil notion of racism, God willing.
