Hate Crime Know Your Rights Workshop

Asylum seekers and refugees are increasingly more likely to be victims of hate crime. More than 6,000 hate crimes were reported in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in the month after the referendum, up 20% on the same period in 2015 (Migrant Help UK).

During Hate Crime Awareness Week, Migrants’ Rights Network and Victim Support will be hosting a workshop on hate crime and about what your rights are as a migrant. The workshop will take place online. Once you register, a link will be sent to you before the event.

This workshop is for migrants that want to know their rights and how to assert them, caseworkers that work with migrants, charities, and members of the public that want to learn how to better identify hate crime in their communities. You will:

  • Learn what hate crime is and how to report it if it happens to you
  • Learn what to do you witness an incident of hate crime
  • Learn what to do if your experience of hate crime involves the police
  • Learn how to report hate crime if you are seeking asylum

We will learn how to identify instances of hate crime, what to do if we witness hate crime, how to report it, and more! For more information and to register click here
