Thank you for helping us #SpreadLoveNotHate this
Hate Crime Awareness Week 2020
During National Hate Crime Awareness Week, the Independent Members of the Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group (AMHWG) ran a social media campaign to raise awareness of Anti-Muslim hate crimes against British Muslim Women and encourage everyone to #SpreadLoveNotHate. 

Research conducted in the UK, US and Europe, show that victims of Anti-Muslim hate crimes are overwhelmingly female. From verbal abuse on the streets and physical attacks on public transport to vitriolic hate speech online, British Muslim women around the UK all have stories of experiencing hatred, which are all too often underreported.

So for this year's National Hate Crime Awareness Week we produced a video with contributions from amazing activists, telling the stories of Muslim women’s real life experiences of hate crime. In creating a space for these women's stories to be heard we hope to also  highlight the intersectional experiences of Anti-Muslim hatred.

A huge thank you to all those who participated in this project and the brave women who allowed us to share their experiences which helped create such a powerful and moving video. 

Please do watch our video and share with your networks 

- Akeela Ahmed MBE - Chair of the AMHWG
