Black History Month 2020: In Solidarity
During Black History Month, Islamic Relief UK stands in solidarity with the Black community in this, especially painful and yet hopeful time. We have a duty to our Black staff, volunteers and supporters; a duty to be loud and proud allies of our Black sisters and brothers.
We will use our voice to raise yours. We will use our platform to educate, to empower, to share, to break barriers, and to help build a better world.
“There is no superiority of an Arab over a non-Arab, or of a non-Arab over an Arab, and no superiority of a white person over a black person or of a black person over a white person, except on the basis of personal piety and righteousness.”
Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)
To our non-Black community, please join us.
Let us help one another to educate ourselves, to unlearn our internalised racism, to start conversations, to uphold justice, to share stories, and to support Black community work.
