A tremendous amount of effort was expended regarding Hate Crime Awareness Week and I am happy to report that it was a resounding success.
Due to our collaborative effort our message reached over a million people through social media.
As the Hate Crime Lead for the Association for Police and Crime Commissioners I would love to see that we all take this message further in our everyday lives throughout the year.
My Police and Crime Commissioner colleagues united with key partners, stakeholders, voluntary groups and especially the people of our local communities throughout our Counties, standing together to signify a united stance.
To achieve this we took to social media to post a photograph, either as a selfie, a group selfie, whilst holding the sign and saying a few words to show support to the week.
The sign includes the hashtag #NO2HATE and we hoped that this trended as people across the nation showed their joint support.
I posting messages throughout the week to be commented on and shared with contacts and friends so we could get the message out there that we will not tolerate Hate Crime in any form.
Help us all raise awareness of this repugnant crime in its many forms and shout #NO2HATE.
