Rehana is a community activist in Luton, dedicated to promoting understanding and friendships. She is the chair of the recently established Luton An Nisa Trust, LANTern, a grassroots movement which seeks to empower Muslim women through engagement in social issues. Over the past eighteen months Peter and Rehana have worked closely together in a number of projects to increase cross community partnership and thus challenge the extremist narrative of inevitable inter-religious conflict. The most recent, FACES, Faiths Against Children’s Sexual Exploitation, has engaged senior leaders in Christian and Muslim communities to work for the welfare of all young people in Luton.
“We responded to the demonstration with consistents of act of solidarity, statements that say that we are together.”
