Hate crime awareness week is 14 to 21 October 2023.
Hate crime has no place in the UK. Everyone in Kent has the right to feel safe, and we all have the responsibility to stand against hatred and discrimination by raising awareness, encourage reporting, improve our response to hate crime and prevent further incidents from taking place.
National Hate Crime Awareness Week is a week of action to encourage local authorities, key partners and communities to tackle hate crime. There has never been a more crucial time for us to all work together to tackle hate crime.
All forms of hate crime are unacceptable in any circumstances and Kent Police will respond strongly to any incidents. Hatred not only has the potential to cause serious physical and emotional harm, it can damage communities and cause division.
