If you have been a victim of #HateCrime you can speak with @HCASNI - it's led by @VictimSupportNI with advocates from @TRPNI @MigrantCentreNI @LCinNIreland 👇 📱 028 9024 3133 💻 hcasni.com 📧 hate.crime@hcasni.org.uk
This is the impact of hate crime on our LGBTQIA communities. In 2021/22 we recorded the highest numbers of homophobic and transphobic hate crimes since 2004/05. Everyone should be able to live their life free from fear. Take a stand with us - there is no place for hate.
