Glasgow is no Place for Hate ⁠

They are launching the campaign this year with our first ever online event.

Have you ever wondered what hate crime means? Do you hear the term used but are not sure what it is? This event is for anyone who wants to find out more about hate crime, what it is, what we can do about it and how we can come together to make Glasgow an even better place where everyone is respected and lives in safety. We will look at all forms of hate crime but with an emphasis on disability hate crime. Please join us in making Glasgow No Place for Hate in 2020. ⁠
