As an organisation that works to educate London’s Muslim community and the wider public about issues affecting Muslims, we feel it is vital to commemorate Srebrenica and to remember those who were killed because of their religious and ethnic background. At the same time it is vital to take a stand against hatred and discrimination that targets groups based on their religion, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or any type of difference.

In November, we bid farewell to Rameez Kaleem who will be stepping down as Chair and Trustee of the City Circle.

Rameez joined the City Circle Saturday School as a teacher in 2005 and subsequently managed the school as Head Teacher from 2011 to 2013. He was appointed as Chair of the City Circle in 2014 and has worked tirelessly to strengthen and promote the charity's projects. In 2013, he set up the successful homelessness project in partnership with Children of Adam, and in 2014 he established the partnership with St James' Winter Shelter.
