An event to welcome the week of focus and action on hate crime in Greater Manchester

About this event

You are invited to the launch of Greater Manchester's Hate Crime Awareness Week on 1 February 2021 at 10am.

Each year Greater Manchester hosts a week of action to raise awareness of hate crime to emphasise that it's wrong to be targeted for abuse or harassment because of who you are.

The week provides an opportunity for everyone across Greater Manchester to stand together and to celebrate our diversity. It's also a chance to educate, raise awareness of hate and encourage both victims and witnesses to report it.

Importantly, it shines a light on the need to reach out to others within our communities to listen to them, give them a voice, and to support them if they have been a victim of an incident that was motivated by hate.

Whilst the last 12 months has brought unprecedented challenges that have impacted our front line public services, businesses and our local communities, Greater Manchester is committed to continue to run activities in and around this week as we continue to drive the efforts to tackle hate in all its forms.

This event is an opportunity to hear about the great work taking place in Greater Manchester. Speakers include:

• Baroness Beverley Hughes, Deputy Mayor for Police, Crime, Criminal Justice and Fire

• Chief Superintendent Umer Khan, Greater Manchester Police

• Martin Goldman, Chief Crown Prosecutor

You'll learn more about the activity taking place during the week and details of how to access resources and communication tools to support Greater Manchester's Hate Crime Awareness Week.

The event will be held on Microsoft Teams and full joining instructions will be sent out ahead of the event.
