Content Warning: The content, links and resources included on this page will involve discussion around topics including hate crime, discrimination, physical violence, and harassment.
A hate crime or incident is an act of violence, verbal abuse, physical abuse, discrimination or hostility motivated by prejudice based on your characteristics such as race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or disability. It’s never ok to be targeted because of who you, your family or your friends are. You have the right to live your life free from abuse and violence. If you’ve been the victim of a hate crime remember it is not your fault and help is available.
When you report a hate crime, you become part of the movement to stop it. Every report matters and together we can help to stop hate. Experiencing or witnessing a hate incident can also negatively impact your mental health. You could feel worried or anxious, depressed, scared or lonely. This is completely normal, and there is help and support available.
