18 July 2022 - NationalHCAW Summer Meeting

We are starting to make preparations for our next online Zoom meeting, our Summer meeting which will take place on Monday 18th July 2022.
  • Discussions finalising plans for National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2022
  • Networking opportunities
  • Presentations

NB: Our onlines meetings are aimed at Hate Crime Sector professionals working across the UK, people who work and volunteer for anti-hate crime groups and organisations. We want to create opportunities for networking, communication and collaboration across the sector.

The meetings are not aimed at individuals experiencing hate crime or to provide a forum for cases/casework to be discussed - victims of hate crime should be directed to organisations that take on casework - as listed on the Reporting Hate Crime page on our national website.

We were invited to attend the Mayor of London's Pride Reception at City Hall.
Mark Healey took part in the Gay Liberation Front's Veteran's Pride March on Friday 1st July - marking the 50th anniversary of their first Pride March in 1972.

The Hate Crime Stand has been displayed a couple of times at the new weekly Croydon LGBT+ Meet Up events that take place on Wednesdays in Croydon.

STOP PRESS - Mark Healey is running out of supplies for his hate crime stall.

"I'm keen to do everything I can to promote the spectrum of organisations that are providing advice and support to victims of hate crime, but I can only do this if those organisations supply me with free leaflets and posters to display on my hate crime stall, and to place in the Hate Crime Reference and Resource folders that I am putting together for the libraries."

If you can supply me with business cards, leaflets and posters - send them to Mark Healey C/O Metro Charity, The Mulberry Centre, 15 Amersham Vale, London SE14 6LE

Back in January we raised funds to purchase the Intersex Progressive Rainbow Flags (designed by Valentino - pictured left) for all the civic Mayors across London.

It was a pleasure to have our photo taken with the Lord Mayor of Westminister, the new leader of Westminster Council and the flag, at the Lord Mayor of Westmisnter's Pride Reception.

We are hoping to get photos with all the Civic Mayors and their flags - and hope they will fly the flag for the LGBT+ community during their term of office.
Come say hello at Croydon Pride on the 16th July! Waltham Forest Pride in on Saturday 30th July, UK Black Pride on Sunday 14th August 2022, and Bi Pride UK on the 3rd September 2022.

There are still many more opportunities to participate in the season of Solidarity / Pride events taking place across the UK.

The charity LGBT Hero has put together a list of local Pride events here.
In July we will be writing to all the Civic Mayors across London to invite them to our annual Act of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime that is scheduled to take place at St Paul's Cathedral on Sunday 9th October 2022
This year the theme is "We Stand Together Against Racism" to promote awareness of the hate and prejudice experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic by the South and Southeast Asian Communities - we will be working closely with the Campaign Against Racism Group.
Register for our annual event at St Paul's Cathedral >
