National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW 2016 is fast approaching…

The week takes place between the 2nd to 3rd Saturday in October each year – starting with a special launch event at St Paul’s Cathedral, followed by hate crime awareness events around the UK.

Last year over 200 events were registered with us. You can find out more about what took place here.

This year’s theme – is Standing Together with those affected by acts of hatred around the world.

We will be using the hash tags #NHCAW #WeStandTogether #NoPlaceForHate #SafePlaceForAll and #IDOHAR.

Our aim is to encourage local authorities (local councils and local police services) to work together with communities affected by hate crime across the UK to stage hate crime awareness events to promote a message of Hope.

H.O.P.E. stands for

  • Hate crime awareness,
  • Operational response to hate crime,
  • Preventing hate crime and
  • Empowering communities to report hate crime and access victim support services.

Now is the time to prompt your local authorities to get involved!

The week ends with International Day of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by hate #IDOHAR– when vigils against hate crime take place around the UK.

Are you ready?

This year NHCAW takes place between the 8th to 15th October.

International Day of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate takes place on the 15th October
