Hate Crime Awareness Week

13 – 19 Oct marks the first Hate Crime Awareness Week to raise awareness of Hate Crime and encourage people to do something local to tackle local Hate Crime issues.  It is hoped that the week will help promote local hate crime services and support by encouraging people to signpost local contact information, hold stalls and organise small hate crime awareness events.

Galop will be attending the London Vigil Against Hate Crime on Saturday 20th October 2012 between 7pm – 9pm in Trafalgar Square, London whilst other vigils take place around the UK and abroad.

Other events during the week include an Act Of Remembrance service held at St Paul’s Cathedral, at 6.30pm on 13 Oct, and the dedication of a permanent memorial bench to Jody Dubrowski, at 12.30 on 14 Oct, on Clapham Common where he was murdered.

We would encourage everyone to get involved in helping to raise the profile of this issue, as well as remembering those who have been affected by hate crime.
