This week is National Hate Crime Awareness Week
Spread love not hate is the message being spread this week across North Wales.
Communities in North Wales need to come together to tackle all forms of hate crime, as part of National Hate Crime Awareness Week which begins on 13th October 2018. Gwynedd Citizens Advice will be promoting ways on how to report Hate Crime by talking to groups in the community.
Hate Crime is on the rise and needs to be stopped. Crimes committed against someone because of their age, religion, gender identity, disability and sexual orientation are all Hate Crimes. It is important people can identify what a Hate Crime is and how to report it so that it can be stopped.
Gwynedd Citizens Advice can assist with helping people report Hate Crimes and help with identifying what Hate Crime is.
Tal Michael, CEO of Gwynedd Citizens Advice said:
‘If you witness any Hate Crime please report it. It is vital that Hate Crimes are reported to put an end to Hate Crime. North Wales is a place open for everyone no matter who they are and where they come from. This campaign is a fabulous opportunity to promote how Hate Crime can be reported and most importantly identifying when Hate Crime happens’
Hate Crime can also be reported to Stop Hate UK
