Edinburgh is a diverse and thriving city that does not tolerate any form of Hate Crime; abuse, bullying or violent behaviour towards someone because of their age, gender, race, faith, sexual orientation or disability.
Edinburgh Council, along with their partners, have launched a campaign to combat the corrosive effect of hate crime and are encouraging people to report instances of hate crime. The campaign “Hate Crime is No Joke – No One’s Laughing”, which takes place over a four-week period, will involve various activities including:
- officers visiting venues such as corner shops, takeaway restaurants, pubs and clubs and talking to them about hate crime and asking them to display our posters;
- adverts in various bus shelters and phone boxes from Ferry Road through Leith Walk up into the City Centre; and
- chalk stencilling on pavements.
Media Students from Stevenson College have also kindly produced an advert which will run during the campaign which you can checkout on Youtube by clicking here.
