One of the Saturday workshops included an important opportunity to learn about what hate crimes and hate incidents are and what the difference is between them. This helps citizens be aware of injustices happening on the streets and in our society that should not be tolerated, should be reported and potentially even reported to police.
Leading local expert, Dr. Irfan Chaudhry joined us to talk about his research and his involvement with groups addressing hate crimes and incidents. It was very insightful to learn about the nuances between policing, legislation, human rights acts and much more. What a great intro course it was, check out the video below!
