What is Hate Crime Awareness Week 2021?
Hate Crime Awareness Week is a national week (9th October – 16th October 2021) of action to encourage local authorities, key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle local hate crime issues.
The countywide Inclusive Communities Joint Coordinating Group, formally the Hate Crime Working Group, will utilise this week, Monday 11th October – Friday 15th October, to promote and raise awareness on how to become an active bystander safely, to report Hate Crime/Mate Crime incidents, along with supporting projects and services available to those who may suffer incidents of Hate Crime/Mate Crime in North Yorkshire and the City of York. This is supported by the Safeguarding Adults Boards, Safeguarding Children Partnerships and Community Safety Partnerships.
Representatives from a number of organisations/partnership have met to build on last year’s successful campaign in finalising proposals and plans for a coordinated social media campaign that makes use of and signposts to, existing resources.
