Mark Healey said
“I am really excited about this year’s week – we have made some great progress, the Mayor’s Office of Policing and Crime MOPAC are running a hate crime awareness campaign across London leading up to the event. Many of the objectives laid out in the MOPAC Hate Crime Reduction Strategy are on course for completion by October. The Prime Minister has recognised our work with the #PointsofLight award and working in partnership with Stop Hate UK and the TrueVision I believe we are going to reach more parts of the country, and more importantly more people than ever before.”
17-24-30 have developed a Hate Crime Awareness Week google map and events listings so those organising events around the UK can register and have their events listed. This will make it easier to promote the work that many are doing around the country.
17-24-30 is also encouraging venues and organisations to get involved and appoint Venue Hate Crime Champions. 17-24-30 plans to train the venue champions and provide them with information which they can display on their premises. Not just LGBT venues – we are looking for places of work, places of worship, police stations, council buildings, schools and community centres to get involved.
“Working with Stop Hate UK we are keen to work across all the communities affected by hate crime (Disability, Gender Identity, Faith, Race, Sexual Orientation and Alternative Sub-cultures) and encourage everyone to work together to eliminate all forms of hate. We will be using the hash tags #NHCAW #NoPlaceForHate, #SafePlaceForAll, #WeStandTogether!
