New Resources by National LGBT Hate Crime Unit Published
Professor Surya Monro has worked on behalf of BiUK with the National LGBT Hate Crime Unit. They, and in consultation with other bi* activist groups, have produced a series of resources to help individuals affected by hate crime, and to support agencies tackling hate crime. These are published in advance of National Hate Crime Awareness Week that will take place from the 8th to 15th October 2016.
The 17 resources, and 5 videos, offer guidance and practical help on a wide range of subjects, including:
- Emergency Accommodation
- Financial assistance schemes
- Practical help keeping a record of incidents
- Guidance for LGBT parents on talking to their children about bullying
- Tackling Biphobia and Transphobia
The leaflet on Tackling Biphobia: A Guide for Safety Services is available to download here.
