Newark Stop Hate Crime launches poster competition to rule out race hate
A Newark group has launched a poster competition ahead of National Hate Crime Awareness Week.
The group, Newark Stop Hate Crime, is asking members of the public to submit their anti hate crime posters to the foyer of Newark College by 5pm on Wednesday, October 15.
National Hate Crime Awareness Week will take place from October 9 to October 16. The group's theme for this year is #SafePlaceForAll.
Formed in 2019, Newark Stop Hate Crime brings existing groups and organisations together to raise public awareness of how to report hate crime, even if you are a bystander.
It is supported by various organisations, including Nottinghamshire Police, Newark College, Nottingham Mencap, Nottinghamshire Victim Care, Newark Reach, Shawmind, Inspire, The National Holocaust Centre and Museum, Newark Town Council, and Newark and Sherwood District Council.
Newark Stop Hate Crime will be in Newark Market Place on Saturday, October 9 with a stall providing activities for children.
