Tackling Hate Crime
No One's laughing....
Edinburgh is a diverse and thriving city that does not tolerate any form of Hate Crime; abuse, bullying or violent behaviour towards someone because of their age, gender, race, faith, sexual orientation or disability.

We, along with our partners, have launched a campaign to combat the corrosive effect of hate crime and are encouraging people to report instances of hate crime. The campaign, which takes place over a four week period, will involve various activities including:
- officers visiting venues such as corner shops, takeaway restaurants, pubs and clubs and talking to them about hate crime and asking them to display our posters;
- adverts in various bus shelters and phone boxes from Ferry Road through Leith Walk up into the City Centre; and
- chalk stencilling on pavements.
Media Students from Stevenson College have also kindly produced the advert below for us to run during the campaign.
