In previous years a tremendous amount of effort across the UK has been expended regarding Hate Crime Awareness Week and I am happy to report that these have been a resounding success.
Due to our collaborative effort the #NO2HATE message has reached around a million people every year through social media since it started in 2018, and one and a half million in 2020.
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 are working with key partners, stakeholders, voluntary groups, and especially the people of our local communities, to stand together to signify our unity.
To achieve this we take to social media to post a photograph, either as a selfie, a group selfie, whilst holding the #NO2HATE sign and saying a few words to show support to the week.
This year due to the Coronavirus things were different but we still asked people to show their support.
We posted 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.
These are the downloadable reasorces available during the campaign.
