Description

22 November 2018

12:30-13:30pm

Reports of disability hate crime are on the increase. Research has found that changes to the incapacity benefits following the economic crash have been a contributing factor. Disabled people are now commonly perceived and framed as fraudulent 'scroungers' and 'skivers' and victimised as a result. Victims of hate crimes describe the inadequate, offensive and inappropriate responses from the criminal justice system that have created a sense of secondary victimisation. The impact of this on disabled communities is extensive, including moving home, acceptance of hate crimes as a part of life and much more. So, what can be done?

We will also be joined by the mental health zone to discuss reporting hate crimes at university.
