for stronger lgbt+ communities
A week of action to encourage the authorities (Government, Police and Councils), key partners (Business and Voluntary Sectors), and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle hate crime across the UK.
We remember those we have lost, those who need our ongoing support and continue to spread a message of H.O.P.E.
H – for Hate Crime Awareness (ensuring everyone knows what hate crime is and how to repond to it), O – for Operational Responses (we need to work with the police to improve their operational responses to hate crime and ensure our community knows what to do as well), P – for Prevention (where hate crime has happened before we aim to learn and share knowledge in order to prevent it happening again), and E – for Engageing Everyone (we believe it is important to get everyone around the table so we can find the solutions to eliminating all forms of hate crime together).
We aim to bring people together, to say no to hate crime and make our communities safer places for everyone to live in peace and harmony together.
In 2023 we will be focussing on Faith Hate Crime, working in partnership with the Community Security Trust CST to address Anti-Semitism in the UK.
