Hate Crime Awareness Week

Next week is Hate Crime Awareness Week between 12 – 19 October 2013. This is the second year it has taken place. This is your chance to raise awareness of hate crime and help to tackle it.

The Disability Hate Crime Action Group Cymru (of which Learning Disability Wales is an active member) has produced a factsheet:  Working Together to Tackle Disability Hate Crime: Facts and Figures – What you need to know.  For further information on the group see their facebook page Disability Hate Crime Action Group Cymru or look at the webpage http://www.disabilitywales.org/2831/disability-hate-crime-action-group-cymru

Some members of Conwy Connect attended the consultation session held on 30 September. The Welsh Government’s consultation document is still available to respond to ‘Tackling Hate Crimes and incidents: A framework for action. By 18 October. See http://wales.gov.uk/consultations/equality/130711-hate-crime-framework-consul/?lang=en available in easy read. Their framework recognises that ‘stronger campaigning during hate crime awareness week is a way to promote the need to tackle hate crime’.
