Some people are still facing hate, based solely on their identity.
On Wednesday 13th September, join:
- Derbyshire Victim Services,
- the Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner,
- Derbyshire Constabulary,
- Derbyshire County Council,
- and Derby City Council,
at Markeaton Park for a 1.4 mile circular walk to pledge your support to Step Up and Beat Hate Crime throughout Derby and Derbyshire. If you don’t fancy the walk, you can also pop along for a free cuppa and a cake.
Councillor Asaf Afzal said, “Crimes based on hatred must never be tolerated. Together with events like these, and with the help of partner agencies and communities, we will do everything we can to tackle all forms of hate crime.
“Our aim is to ensure Derby continues to be a city where people have a sense of belonging, contribute to society and get on well together. There are many in our community who are not aware that they are victims of hate crime or what to do about it when they are, I hope that this will help give people confidence to report it and not suffer in silence.”
To find out more and confirm that you’ll be coming along to the event call 0800 612 6505.
