Hate Crime Resources for schools
Hate Crime Awareness Week is on 14th - 18th October. Hate Crime increases after terror attacks and can also lead into a cycle of retaliation for future harm, division and violence. One of the biggest issues with hate crime is that often both victims and perpetrators do not realise a hate crime is being committed. What can your school do to raise awareness of this issue and what support is there for pupils affected by this?
Resources for schools:
Why Me? delivers a service supporting victims of crime and participants through the Restorative Justice process and are offering FREE Restorative Justice Training to Lambeth schools. Restorative Justice is a process where harmed people can have a dialogue with harmers in a carefully controlled, expertly-facilitated setting. It could be a face to face meeting or a simple exchange of letters. This process has helped thousands of victims to get answers about why they became victims of harmful incidents, and to get closure for any wrongdoing committed against them. Restorative Justice Training would be beneficial to those who are:
Managing difficult disputes that contain an element of discrimination
Looking at dealing with disputes in a more constructive way
Why Me? are visiting schools in Lambeth and Southwark to provide FREE training on Restorative Justice for hate incidents.
