They’ll join 128 other residents who’ve completed the training since 2008.
“I was proud to meet our newest champions and to hear about their plans to further build community cohesion, peace and tolerance in their neighbourhoods,” he said.
“Diversity is one of our greatest strengths in Tower Hamlets. We will continue to work together with our partners to stamp out all forms of discrimination.”
