Charities Challenging Hate Crime

14.15 Introductions and apologies
14.15 Race and faith hate debate
The Law Commission is reviewing all laws relating to hate crime and targeted abuse.
Survivors of race and faith hate are technically the most protected of the ‘protected characteristics’, however, many feel the law still does not work as well as it could particularly for intersectional and unheard communities for example BAMER and Muslim women, LGBTQI people of faith, black men with mental health support needs, GRT people and refugees. We are collecting expert by experience and frontline evidence to submit to the Law Commission review and champion the need for #ParityAndClarity
15.00 BREAK
15.15 National Hate Crime Awareness Week planning
We are delighted to be joined by Mark Healey founder of National HCAW and the team. They will present their plans for October and help add your events to their online map.
Get feedback on your plans, tell Local Authorities, police and others what you want from celebrations this year and perhaps arrange some partnership, cross-borough and pan-equality events for National Hate Crime Awareness Week 12th – 19th October 2019
15.50 Any Other Business
16.00 Meeting ends

Room available for networking until 17.30
