Minister of Faith Lord Bourne presents awards to Manchester Community Champions who work to tackle hatred

Minister of Faith Lord presented awards to Community Champions in Manchester who work to tackle hatred and unite communities by commemorating Srebrenica Memorial Day each year.

The Awards dinner took place at the British Muslim Heritage Centre. Srebrenica was the worst atrocity on  European soil since the Second World War. The victims, predominantly Muslim, were selected for death on the basis of their identity.

Lord Bourne was joined by local politicians and dignitaries including Afzal Khan MP, Kate Green MP, the former Police and Crime Commissioner of Greater Manchester, Tony Lloyd MP as well as the Lord Mayor of Manchester and the Deputy Lord Lieutenant.

The Chairman ofRemembering Srebrenica, Dr Waqar Azmi OBE said:

“These awards highlight the powerful impact of community champions in Manchester and surrounding areas. Their dedication to building bridges and confronting hate within UK communities is truly admirable and humbling.

“I want to pay a particular tribute to the North West Board chair Elinor Chohan and all her board members for inspiring our community champions to commemorate Srebrenica Memorial Day and help create stronger, safer communities”.
