A new campaign against racism and to educate children in schools about fighting back against hate crime has been been making ground in schools.
Since a letter calling for people to ‘punish a Muslim’ was spread across the country, Stand Up! Education Against Discrimination, (Stand Up!) an anti-racism organisation, has been going to schools across Barnet to teach young people how to act about discrimination and racism.
Stand Up!, is government funded and led by Streetwise and supported by TellMAMA, Kick It Out and Galop. Since its launch in January 2017 it has delivered free sessions to over 7,000 young people in 35 schools to date.
