Hate Crime Awareness Week in #Croydon – 13-20 October 2018

Croydon’s Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018 events for 2018 are being hosted by Croydon Council and Croydon Voluntary Action (CVA).

CVA writes,

“With hate crime on the rise it is a vital time for our borough to be tackling the issue head on and our week-long event programme invites you to do exactly that.

The week comprises of seven thematic discussion panels as well as other activities led by a host of community organisations. Each panel will discuss in depth the nature of hate crime and incidents occurring in the borough through shedding light on community experiences and how residents, the voluntary sector and public organisations are both responding to what is happening on the ground and finding ways to prevent the conditions that give rise to hate crime.”
