Hate Crime

Do you know what hate crime means?

Would you recognise a hate crime?

Do you understand why tackling hate crime is so important?

Targeting individuals because they are seen in some way as ‘different’ is unacceptable, what can seem like a case of bullying in school could actually be deemed to be a hate crime.  

Young people should be taught about hate crime/bullying and the affect it can have on other people. They should also be taught how to challenge any prejudices against themselves or others.
