Afzal Khan MP is currently the shadow minister for legal aid. He became the first Muslim Lord Mayor of Manchester in 2005-6 and served as a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for North West England from 2014 to 2017. In January 2016, Khan was appointed by the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament as Special Representative to Muslim Communities.

This event is part of a pan-European campaign, led by and in solidarity with, Europe’s Muslim communities, to challenge the mainstreaming of Islamophobia across the political spectrum. We seek to build a progressive movement for an alternative politics that is radical, inclusive and transnational.
