On behalf of Bradford Council’s Diversity and Cohesion Service I would like to invite to the 23rd Commemoration of the Srebrenica Genocide due to take place on Monday 8h July from 10.00pm until 12.30pm at the Banqueting Suite, City
This year, we are recognising the 24th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica, during which thousands of men and boys were systematically murdered, simply because they were Muslim. As an organisation that works with people from diverse communities and
backgrounds, we feel it is vital to commemorate Srebrenica to take a stand against hatred and discrimination that targets groups based on their religion, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or any type of difference.
The theme for 2019, ‘Bridging the Divide: Confronting Hate’ seeks to inspire people to challenge those who wish to divide communities, celebrate those who build bridges between communities and change attitudes and behaviors in others to go out and build
bridges of their own.
We hope to be able to use the lessons from Srebrenica to inspire individuals and communities to forge relationships with people from different backgrounds to build bridges of their own and to empower them to challenge hate. We hope that this year, through
understanding the past, we can work to build a better future.
The event will be joined by civic, community, faith and political leaders and we hope you will join us in mourning the loss of those who died at Srebrenica, and reflecting on how we as individuals, groups and communities can come together to build a better
future without hatred.
