National Hate Crime Awareness Week

National Hate Crime Awareness Week

Did you know National Hate Crime Awareness Week takes place in October every year and it is this week!

It is an opportunity to raise awareness of what hate crime is and stand by those affected by it.

National Hate Crime Awareness Week encourages us to consider how we can respond to hate crime when we witness or are victims to it. This can help to ensure people report instances of hate crime, victims get the support they need and those committing it are met with justice.

Hate crime includes any criminal offence targeted at someone that is fuelled by hostility or prejudice related to the individual’s disability, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender identity.

Hate crime has no place in Kirklees and everyone has the right to feel safe and live without fear or hatred. We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and discrimination.
