Whether it’s homophobic abuse, racism or prejudice, hate crime can present itself in many ways.
Having seen how this can affect people’s lives, it’s unfortunate that many cases go unreported because people who see it are either unsure of what to do, or too scared to do anything.
With the help of Fixers, my team and I have created a short film, which aims to raise awareness of what could be considered a hate crime.
Hopefully through education, we can help people to become better at reporting it and ultimately prevent others from enduring this kind of abuse.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council
We are all members of the equality council. They supported our Fix by allowing us to hold meetings in their offices and also helped with research for the project.
A special thank you to Sarah Dominguez, who was also involved in making our Fixers film.
Fixers is a project of the Public Service Broadcasting Trust, funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund, and featured on ITV.
