HATE CRIME: TIME TO STOP THE HATE

Tuesday 22 October: 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Anglia Ruskin University, Lord Ashcroft Building - LAB026, East Road, CB1 1PT

The Macpherson Report, commissioned to investigate the death of Stephen Lawrence, defined the meaning of racist incidents. This term is what we now call Hate Crime.

Anyone can experience Hate Crime and it can be because of someone’s faith, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or disability – which are the five officially monitored strands of Hate Crime.

During this lecture we will look at:

- What Hate Crime is and how to recognise it
- What Hate Crime looks like and understanding its many forms
- The impact it has on those who experience it
- Exploring how we can better support people who experience it
- What is being done to ‘Stop the Hate’

Speakers are:

Rose Simkins - Chief Executive of the leading national charity, Stop Hate UK
Chris Long - Chief Crown Prosecutor for the East of England Area
Sgt Phil Priestly - Cambridgeshire Police

The event will be chaired by Graham Lewis, who is Chair of the Board of Trustees of Stop Hate UK, Special Advisor on Hate Crime to Encompass Network and activist on Equalities in Cambridgeshire.

Presented by Stop Hate UK, www.stophateuk.org
