Disability hate crime is on the increase
As part of Hate Crime Week, join us to find out more about disability hate crime, including how to report it and how you can be an ally to anyone experiencing it.
When: 5.30-7pm, Thursday 14th October
Where: Online (Zoom)
Accessibility: The event will use BSL interpreters and zoom captions (subtitles) – please let us know during booking if you require either of these so we can ensure that you’re in the right breakout room.
To book: Book through Eventbrite, email us or leave a message on our answerphone (01904 326781).
There will be the opportunity to hear about individual experiences (and share your own but only if you wish to). You’ll also learn about what to do if you see anyone else experiencing hate crime.
We will be joined by members of York People First, a self-advocacy group for people with learning disabilities, who will show a film that they have made recently.
PC Stuart Henderson, the lead officer on hate crime with North Yorkshire Police, will also be joining and he’ll explain how to report Hate Crimes and how to get support.
We hope to create a supportive atmosphere in which to discuss this important topic and to also share ideas about how to tackle it locally.
