Visit to the Scottish Parliament meeting on Tackling Islamophobia

Show Racism the Red Card Scotland attended the latest Cross Party Group meeting on Tackling Islamophobia.

Chaired by Anas Sarwar MSP, it is currently the largest Cross Party Group within the Scottish Parliament with members from Labour, SNP, Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and the Greens.

The team from Show Racism the Red Card Scotland attended the January 2019 meeting, hearing from educational institutions, businesses and local council decision makers on their experiences.

There is a clear gap in resources currently available to educators and workplace management in dealing with Islamophobia. There is also a need to understand how to identify it in even the most subtle of its forms. With racism on the rise, Show Racism the Red Card will continue to work with educators, businesses and Parliament to ensure Scotland is a leading example of anti-Islamophobia.
