National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018






National Hate Crime Awareness Week (NHCAW) is an opportunity to raise awareness of hate crime, communicate our commitment to the issue to citizens and affected communities, and to promote cohesion by continuing to develop the narrative of solidarity and ‘Nottingham Together’.

NCHAW 2018 will run from Saturday 13th October – Saturday 20th October.

The following activities are being planned:

    • Neighbourhood based events and activities – smaller community based events to bring people together and facilitate conversation. The aim is to partner with existing groups and activities (such as social eating events, coffee mornings) and disseminate information on hate crime indirectly. Many of these are being organised by partners including voluntary sector organisations and the universities.
      When: Throughout the week
    • No to Hate Pledge – key leaders in the city and county will get together to reaffirm their commitment to the No to Hate pledge and to communicate progress made. Cllr Neal will be joined by the PCC Paddy Tipping, Assistant Chief Constable at Nottinghamshire Police, Pro VC for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Nottingham and leaders from other partner organisations.
      When: Monday 15th October, 10.30am – 11.30am
    • No Place For Hate Lunchtime Summit – a partnership event between One Nottingham and Nottingham Citizens, this aims to highlight the valuable and innovative work taking place in Nottingham to tackle hate crime, and to engage organisations and individuals in playing their part in challenging prejudice.
      When: Friday 19th October, 11am – 1pm 
    • Social Media Campaign – we will be running a #NoPlaceForHate social media campaign, encouraging individuals, groups and organisations to post pictures on social media platforms with ‘No Place For Hate’ signs as seen. Several partners are already on board including Notts County Football Club, Nottinghamshire Police, Victim CARE.

What is a hate crime or incident?

A hate crime or incident is any incident where someone is targeted because of their identity. Hate crime can take any shape and isn't always illegal behaviour, but it is always motivated by prejudice, often in the following areas:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Transgender
  • Misogyny
  • Alternative sub-culture e.g. goth

To report a hate crime, either anonymously or non-anonymously:
