Integration - it's possible locally! Recommendations for local authorities on counteracting Islamophobia

Integration - it's possible locally! Recommendations for local authorities on counteracting Islamophobia

Last year we worked at PFM with a group of experts on the issue of Islamophobia - negative perception of Muslims, especially women. The result of this work is the document "Prevention of Islamophobia against women and girls - recommendations for local authorities". The document is designed to help local authorities build their own policies that take into account the presence of diverse residents and their needs.

Despite the considerable experience in working with migrants, at the stage of gathering the knowledge needed to prepare the recommendations, we were amazed at the scale of unpleasantness, mistreatment and humiliation that women and girls who profess Islam endure in Poland every day. Do you know that in today's Poland there are women who get up every morning expecting something unpleasant to happen to them?
We provide below recommendations for local authorities: how to care for the well-being of diverse residents. Our recommendations can be successfully used to create local policies regarding people who are culturally different from all contexts, not only Muslims, but also groups from different countries, different religions, of various sizes, as well as those who came to Poland for various reasons (i.e. -students such as people coming to work, children in schools and adults, newcomers from Ukraine, Vietnam, the Philippines or India).
We also invite you to contact us if you would like to learn more about our experiences while looking at the presence of migrants in your community. The goal of the Foundation is to create a space in Poland where people of different cultures live in mutual respect and peace, where everyone is respected and the rights of each person are respected.
If we can help you, your municipality, town, village, district or your province to become more open and kind - we will do our best.
