Suffolk Hate Crime Conference 17 Oct 2019 #NoHateinSuffolk
We are pleased to be a member of the Suffolk Hate Crime Network working closely with Suffolk Constabulary, Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council organising the Suffolk Hate Crime Conference this year.
The aim was to bring together partner agencies from the voluntary and statutory sector to raise awareness of hate crime. It gave us all a space to talk about the work taking place in Suffolk, to ensure that the public know where to report and how to access support and to give people opportunities for networking. In the afternoon there was a session specifically for front line police officers.
Some of the agencies who attended the conference were Ace Anglia, Suffolk Refugee Support, Suffolk Guide Dog Forum, THT Suffolk, Citizens Advice, Suffolk Law Centre, Prevent, Suffolk Pride and more…
Alter Ego – a creative theatre company, performed a very powerful and moving piece on the impact of hate crime.
A film produced by Suffolk County Council was launched at the conference to raise awareness of Hate Crime. Agencies who took part in the making of this film included Ace Anglia, ISCRE, Suffolk Refugee Service and the Community Safety Partnership.
Warning – there is some harrowing content at the beginning of this film
