A Fight Against Hate campaign was launched at Delegates Assembly on 7th February 2016 with the following goals:
- engage with Arriva Buses to influence them to display posters raising awareness on hate with “Fighting Against Hate” posters on their buses serving Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.
- engage with our member schools to run a poster design campaign. This will keep schools engaged; especially as there will be a small prize for the 5 or 6 posters selected for advertising.
- work in partnership with MK Council to host a peer support meeting for victims of hate crimes by July 2017, to which we will invite power holders such as the Thames Valley Police and the MK Equality Council
- meet with Thames Valley Police and MK Council to plan an event on best practice in restorative justice.
The campaign team members are:
- Anthony Okotcha*, Church of Christ the Cornerstone
- Bal Bassral, MK Equality Council
