Glasgow Hate Crime Awareness Week 2021

Glasgow Hate Crime Awareness Week 2021 takes place 18 – 24 October.

Glasgow City Council, is committed to working in partnership to raise awareness of Hate Crime, by coordinating Glasgow Hate Crime Awareness Week, from 18 – 24 October 2021.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of the issues surrounding Hate Crime, and publicise the options available to report it safely and celebrate the diversity of our great city.

This year there is a range of activity taking place including a schools competition, Recognising and Reporting Hate Crime training, a  social media campaign showcasing Glasgow’s diversity and a multi media project in collaboration with Glasgow Kelvin College, all  backed with advertising, Radio Clyde, Global Radio, Radio Awaz and Sunny Govan Radio.

We would like to encourage Glaswegians to contribute to the campaign by making a short film for the social media campaign. It only take a few minutes and can be done on your mobile phone. You can find the guidelines for making your film here.

Glasgow Hate Crime Working Group has produced of a range of materials to support the campaign including leaflets and posters in:

  • Arabic
  • English
  • Farsi
  • Mandarin
  • Punjabi
  • Polish
  • Romanian
  • Urdu

You can access leaflets and posters and other campaign resources in our toolkit, which includes a briefing on Hate Crime Awareness Week, logos and banners for websites and social media platforms and a presentation for use on screens within reception areas.

Look out for the Glasgow City Council social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter, which features colleagues from the many communities who are tackling hate crime in Glasgow. Please follow, share and like.

See below poems from local children.

As in previous years, we are using #HateCrime #WeStandTogether #NHCAW #NoPlaceForHate for the campaign.
