Communities “stand together” Hate Awareness Week
Communities are being urged to “Stand together” and report hate.
Partners, including councils across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and the police, are spreading the message and supporting a series of events during National Hate Crime Awareness Week (8-15 October).
The aim is to raise awareness of hate crime and incidents, how to report them and show what communities can do to make people feel safe and less vulnerable
Events include sharing food from different cultures that people can try and ask questions about, enabling people to meet their neighbours, understand their beliefs and share stories.
Darren Goddard, Hate Crime Officer for Leicestershire Police said “We know that hate incidents and hate crimes don’t just impact on the victim but they also affect their family, their friends and the whole community. The theme for this year’s National Hate Crime Awareness Week is Standing Together and there is no stronger message than when our diverse communities stand together side by side against hate and to send a clear message that it has no place in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland”.
Communities are encouraged to hold their own events or visit their local council website for events in their area.
People can report hate incidents and crimes to the Police by phoning 101, there is also the Stamp It Out website which has on-line reporting http://www.stamp-it-out.co.uk/reporting-online.php (which can be anonymous) or in an emergency always call 999.
Anyone with information about a crime in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland can call Leicestershire Police by dialing 101 (calls cost 15p) or call Crimestoppers free and anonymously on 0800 555 111.
