National Hate Crime Awareness Week 12th – 19th October 2019

Last Saturday, together with local Victim Support team we had a Hate Crime awareness session, where our clients had an opportunity to find out information about help availed for victims of hate crime and learn more about the topic.

A hate crime is when someone commits a crime against you because of your disability, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, religion, or any other perceived difference. It doesn’t always include physical violence. Someone using offensive language towards you or harassing you because of who you are, or who they think you are, is also a crime. The same goes for someone posting abusive or offensive messages about you online.

Hate crime comes in many different forms and strikes at the heart of communities. It doesn’t always include physical violence. Someone using offensive language towards you or harassing you because of who you are, or who they think you are, is also a crime. The same goes for someone posting abusive or offensive messages about you online.
