Hate Crime Awareness: Race and Faith context
This session will provide information to enable individuals to recognise hate incidents and crimes and understand the impact such incidents can have on people, their families and communities in which they study, live or work.
The session will outline high profile cases, particularly within the Race, Ethnicity and Faith communities and provide information on current legislation, data reports, existing reporting systems, how to report and support for students, staff and visitors from the community who might have witnessed or experienced a hate crime or incident. It will also inform about hate crime during the Covid-19 pandemic and look at ways we can work together to deliver effective outcomes for those people subjected to hostility because of their personal identities and characteristics and how we could be effective bystanders and exercise our civic role in this scenario. This session will also present testimonials and lived experiences of survivors.
