Description

Hate Crime conference summary

Hate Crime has been on a sharp increase in the last 3 years. Communities have become more divided. We need a collective approach to stop it.

Since the 2016 Referendum the UK has experienced intolerable Hate Crimes. Communities and families have become divided and Politicians and individuals have resorted to using Hate language to put their views across. This has to stop!

KREC and its Partners - the Royal Borough of Kingston, Kingston University, Kingston College and Kingston Police - have come together to set up a Kingston Hate Crime Action Group to tackle the growing threat of Hate Crime in London.

We are bringing together a group of experts to highlight the threat of Hate Crime to communities if it remains unchallenged and unchecked

Chair for the conference Prof John Grieve, CBE; QPM, former Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police, talks about Hate speech which can lead to violence and he states that 'Hate speech is the foothills of terrorism'.

Dr Neville Lawrence, father of Stephen Lawrence who was brutally murdered by racist thugs in a Hate Crime attack, will tell delegates about his continuing pain even after 26 years and what he feels every time he hears about the ongoing knife crime murders.

Leader of Kingston Council, Cllr Liz Green, will formally launch the Kingston Hate Crime Action Group to focus attention on how Partner agencies are tackling Hate Crime locally.

The CEO of Kingston Council, Ian Thomas, CBE, will highlight the approach Kingston is taking in working with its Partners, Kingston University, Kingston College and Kingston Police to bring communities together to share responsibility for tackling Hate Crimes and refer victims to KREC for advice, support and counselling.

Dr Victor Olisa and Mike Ainsworth complete the line-up.
