Event description

Description

This event is for people who live and work in Warwickshire. We want everyone to come together to fight hate in our communities, embrace our differences and promote cohesion. Hate crime is a widely unreported problem as victims don’t always think a crime has been committed. This event will aim to provide a greater understanding about what constitutes hate crime and how it can be reported within Warwickshire. The conference objectives are:-

  • Raise awareness and reinforce messages about hate crime and the importance of reporting.
  • Encourage communities to speak out against hate and report incidents.
  • Empower and inspire people to be actively involved in combating hate within their own community.
  • Update communities about the work being undertaken in Warwickshire by Partners (You said, We did) and obtain ideas about new areas of work.

We are pleased to announce that the Conference will be hosted by Trish Adudu, from BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire. There will also be a variety of speakers including:-

  • Dan Biddle - Dan is a survivor from the 7/7 bombings in London. He has an inspirational story of resilience and ongoing personal battles which is extraordinary and sets him apart from many.
  • Sylvia Lancaster OBE - Sylvia's daughter, Sophie was murdered because of her appearance. Sylvia has set up a charity in her name that aims to educate young people to challenge prejudice/stereoptypes and embrace difference.

The event will be a mix of presentations and more interactive workshop sessions. There will be the opportunity to take part in an African Drumming Workshop or a creative art project. There will also be stalls and displays from organisations such as Victim Support, EQuIP, Tell Mama and other agencies with an interest in this area.

A buffet lunch will be provided.

Car parking is free. If you have any special needs or specific dietary requirements please document these via our registration process.
