Hate Crimes are crimes that are motivated by prejudice toward social groups. In Scotland the law recognises crimes motivated by prejudice based on Religion, Race, Sexual Orientation, Disability and Transgender identity.
Community Safety Glasgow leads a partnership of organisations who work together every day to tackle hate crime. Hate Crime Awareness Week is an annual event that encourages communities and organisations to work together to do the same.
The Campaign launch on Friday 7th October, features a performance from the Purple Poncho Players theatre group, exhibitions and speakers from the West of Scotland Regional Equality Council, Glasgow Adult Protection Committe, Glasgow Hate Crime Working Group, Glasgow Disability Alliance and Remembering Srebrenica.
The event is open to organisations who are working with individuals or communities affected by hate crime and / or or who have a role in tackling hate crime at any level. Come along and join us, and help spread the word that in Glasgow we Don't Stay Silent about hate crime.
