The Northern Meet-up group in association with Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain aims to be an alternative community for those ex-Muslims living in the North of England. It will be a place to meet and network for those who fear segregation and discrimination in their original communities as a result of leaving Islam and who are looking to meet like-minded individuals.
We want to encourage ex-Muslims to introduce themselves here and join our group in order to break the taboo of leaving Islam and by creating a large community of ex-Muslims to provide 'safety in numbers' for those who have left Islam.
It is also an opportunity to create a new social network and friendships. We now have an unprecedented chance to get away with publicly calling ourselves "ex-Muslims" and we are taking this chance. We also hope to honour all those who have never gotten the chance to leave Islam and were forced into self-censorship and compliance now and through out the history.
We are a social group after all so we are about activism through partying! We are looking forward to see you at our events and meetups.
