Today marks the start of National Hate Crime Awareness Week, running from the 8th to 15th October 2016. Our colleagues over at Stop Hate UK and 17-24-30 are doing some great work raising the profile of hate crime in all its forms, and how we can all work together to stop it.
We’re pleased to see that Theresa May has given her personal support to #NHCAW, although it’s a little disappointing that no reference was made to disability hate crime, which still suffers from being under-reported and under-recorded across the UK.
In the coming week we will be tweeting to raise awareness of disability hate crime. Follow us at @disabledpolassn for news, views and interesting links around disability issues.
