The Hate Crime Operational Group has organised the Hate Crime Week 9th – 16th October Events.
Kirklees Cohesion Team in partnership with Safe Kirklees and Batley Poets would like to invite you to a FREE ‘Poems of hope tour’ in support of National Hate Crime Awareness week.
The tour will raise awareness of hate crimes, what they are, the importance of reporting them and the support available for victims.
Each of the six themed events will feature poems specially written and performed by Batley Poets as well as information about hate crimes and the importance of reporting them, children’s activities, readings from local writing groups and an open mic for anyone wishing to get up and share messages of unity.
If you have any questions about the tour, or require further information please email email@example.com.
Hate crime and how to report it?
Hate crimes include physical attack, damage to property, offensive graffiti and inciting hatred, perceived to be aimed at someone because of their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. Hate incidents are similar, but not to a criminal extent, such as verbal and online abuse.
