PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAD BEEN POSTPONED. We will update when we receive the new details.
The Ethnic Minority Police Association of the PSNI has listened to the community issues around race hate crime and have asked the PSNI to hold an event to gather your views on how we could improve our response to hate crime.
We have arranged for an awareness event to provide some information on race hate crime and allow a forum for you to air your views to senior leaders within PSNI.
We hope this event will dispel some myths and enhance your confidence in reporting hate crime.
We encourage as many members of our ethnic minority communities to attend so you can influence policy and improve services.

The civil war in Syria, ongoing since March 2011, has caused an inevitable refugee problem. Millions of war victims who wanted to take refuge in various parts of Europe took a dangerous journey at the risk of their lives.
The main route to Europe was crossing the sea from Turkey to the Greek Island of Lesvos. There, local and foreign volunteers who embraced these people coming by sea did their best to help ease their pain.
