There are plenty of ways you can get involved with online events, webinars, putting up posters, supporting and sharing on social media and even starting conversations around reporting Hate Crime online and in-person.
These are some of the ways people have got involved with National Hate Crime Awareness week in previous years.
- ‘Hands Up to Challenge Hate’ – People posted images on social media with their hands up as a pledge to challenge hate.
- Candlelit vigils were held across the country, including London, Sussex, Devon, Suffolk, and Berkshire.
- There was plenty of coverage in the media and a huge campaign on Social Media!
In past years, we’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of support and would like to thank everybody for their letters and statements, including our Patron, Baroness Lawrence, former Prime Minister David Cameron, and many other senior politicians.
Our thanks also go out to all those who have been involved in, planning, and attending events across the country, and to those who organised and stood vigil to remember all those affected by Hate.
So, let’s get ready for National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2023 and make it one of the most successful ever!
